I'm trying to locate an old friend, and band member from the late 1950's. He was a great Sax player and singer named Billy Bob Turner. He also worked as a guard out at the State Pen. If you have any information, please reply to this post and I will check in. Also looking for Dave, the guitar player, and R.C. Holmes, singer and rythym guitar. We all played at "The Village" and the "Jeffersonian Club" back in 58', 59', & 1960. I would like to get in touch with them again.

Received some sad news today that Billy Bob had passed away about 17 years ago. Sorry to have missed you old friend. I guess Gabriel needed a great "Sax Man".
If R.C. or Dave are still out there, get in touch.

Sorry to say, but our friend passed a few years ago. Billy Bob was a true gentleman and I too worked with him and RC on numerous occasions in the 60's 70's and 80's. He retired from MO, Dept of Corrections and it wasn't long thereafter that the world lost him.

Thanks for your reply. I am sorry that I didn't try to make contact before now. You said you worked with RC. Do you have any information on him. If so, please let me know. Thanks!
By the way Allen, what do you play? I had a lot of fond memories playing music in Jeff City with Billy Bob, R.C., and Dave back in the late 50's.

Its funny how one person sees another, the Billy Bob I knew used affirmative action to get promoted over others and whined until he got the Renz Farm and become a racist horndog. Might ought to ask some of the young female inmates what a great guy he was at Renz Farm. If he was still alive Donald Wyrick could tell you about BBT.

Sounds like you knew the real Billy Turner, glad someone brought this up. I worked under him at Renz Farm and what you say is very true.
