Love them guys from Fallen Rock. They can really get the crowd to party. What ever happened to Dave Runion. He plays key boards, and Moe Beavers too? Are those guys still around?
Here's reaching WAAAAY back...anybody remember the Loners? Don't know about Moe(he was the sweetest little boy)playing in a band when he wasn't much bigger than a guitar!!! Don't know for sure, but I think Dave plays in a Gospel or Christian Rock band....don't quote me.....I only see Dave a couple of times a year. Jeremy or Sadtoo could probably tell you....they are his cousins.

Dave works at Showtime Music in the Crossroads Mall if you'd like to drop by to see him; I can't tell you where he lives. You could be some nutty psycho, and besides, it's Topix faux pas! lol

I think Dennis Zeboskey's son is my son's friend, if he lives in Itmann and married a lady named Sherry. I don't know the man himself, but he and his wife have raised one fine young gentleman who is learning to play the bass. He wants to teach me what he knows since I've had a bass guitar for 5 or 6 years now and haven't had time for formal lessons. He's just sweet!

Delen was a great musician and as I was fortunate enough to experience a great friend, also. This is the time of year that I remember him most, I sure wish he was still here. I also think Fallen Rock and Cheat River are talented. Anyone who works as hard as they do deserves to be commended.

Delen Thomas was one of those people who was just nice to everyone he met! The last time I talked to him--at the Snack Shop before it was closed down-- he promised to play drums on "Long Train Running" for Fallen Rock so that Chad could play bass so DP could play harmonica. It was a very short period of time later that he died. Everyone who knew him misses him.

It warms my heart to read all of these positive comments about these very deserving musicians. It's good to be reminded that our town is full of incredibly genuine people. You guys in Fallen Rock have been nothing but helpful and supportive of my music, and I'm eternally appreciative. Most people don't realize the work that goes into playing a show. It's not just setting up and playing. There are so many things that have to be done in order to have a successful show. This just shows the awesome work ethic that these guys have maintained for many years, and continue to do so today. FRB is without a doubt, the most memorable, talented, and classy group of musicians to ever come out of Mullens! I've always had great respect for, and looked up to you guys. I look forward to hittin' the stage with you guys again sometime. If you guys ever need a time slot filled for a show of any kind, or anything else, just drop me a line.
Merry Christmas everybody!
much love,

Cannon

ps Can't wait to hear your new band Jeremy!

Definately reaching way back with Delen but do you remember his dad, Wallace and his brothers had a bad called the Tommy Thomas band (Tommy was killed in a car accident along with the Bailey man on Hotchkiss Straight stretch many years ago) they played the Greenbrier for several years way back when. As for Moe, I think still living in Ohio, don't quote me on that. Moe played with the 2nd street band with Delen's brother Tommy who was also a good drummer, they played with Rick Moorefied, Joey Ashley and Jim Martin from Beckley who used to teach at MSU and was on the Radio for a while. Randy Harold went on to play with Aaron Tipton for a while, he was in his first video, Ain't nothing wrong with the radion. Robert Lee, I believe still lives in Beckley and doing well after a pool accident. David Runion, see him when in Beckley at work, he's had a hard time but is a very well respected guy. These are the old timers that brought music to the Mullens area, I'm glad to see the tradition is still being carried on. I wish the best for everyone.

I was afraid you'd be busy! I'll take you up on the offer, though--as soon as I'M not so busy! lol

I've really missed all of you guys, and I guess I get to miss you again because we're going to Pipestem this year for New Year's Eve. Let me know when and where your NEXT gig is, and I'll be there with bells on. Maybe I'll bring the big blue Johnson with me then! lol. Did you know you're still the only person who's ever played it?

There is also a band that was partialy from wyoming county called Piney Creek Canyon Band. That was a great group. And some of you old timers would probably remember the Equestrians from Pineville.
Does anyone remember that Bob Bailey, who passed away Christmas Eve, was the keyboard player for Rockola? He was a family member( married to my husband's cousin) and a good man. He will sorely be missed.

PCCB History

FOR ALL... The Piney Creek Canyon Band (PCCB) did not come out of Mullens. It was formed at WVU in Morgantown in 1978. The name originated as a joke for the founding members. It has to be attributed to the Drummer... Larry Tucker. The funny part of the story, that many are unaware of is that Piney Creek in those days (1976, 77, 78) is where the sewage from Beckley was deposited. It was also some nice woods to party in. I'm sure over the years many changes have occured in Piney Creek. For those who can remember back that far, it began as a Southern Rock Cover Band (and a pretty good one) fashioned after true Southern Rock Standards. A guitar army with 3 guitarist, keyboard, bassist, and 2 drummers. Kind of a model of an Allman Brothers, Skynard, Marshall Tucker mix. As the 80's rolled in, country was and continues to be a form of Southern Rock from the mid to late 70's. I hope this sparks some memories from brain cells that may have been abused.
