10 Things You Do Not Know About Sam Talkington, Part 2 [Video]
So, yesterday I shared five things about me I thought you might not know. Were you surprised at any of them?
Today, I will give you another five -- the last five. Stay with me until No. 1. It really is a shocker. I won't disappoint ya!
I almost got to open for AC/DC at Kiel Auditorium in St. Louis, Mo.
I was a guitar player in The Legend Band. At the time, there were really two good bands in the area -- The Legend Band and Troop.
Troop was invited to open for AC/DC but had a previous engagement and turned it down, so we got the gig.
After thinking about it, Troop decided it was a pretty big deal and decided to take it.
I don't blame them.
Right before moving to Montana, I worked overnights at a 7-11. You're the only guy in the store in the middle of the night.
I owned two Hondas before I had my first Harley. I bought it brand new in 1980. It was a Super Glide. Got it for $4,000.
People have often asked me how long I've been growing my hair. It was longer when I played music.
When I first came to Montana, I had a couple of jobs. I went to work for a beer company. You couldn't have a mustache on your lip, hair on your collar or a beard, so I had a burr cut.
So, when I got in radio, and I don't even remember when that was, I started growing my hair. My mom cut 7 inches once. She was a beautician and said she wanted to cut the split ends off. I didn't care. It was my mom.
I feel lucky to have my hair. Two of my brothers are going bald. I ain't got bald spot one.
You will have to watch the video to find out about this one.
Thanks for tuning in.
Ain't life grand!?!?!
