Mack Doss Sr. and Bob Slicker

Mack Doss Sr.. asked that we share his Facebook comments on The Sarasota Post.

I've had a wonderful career in music. I love it just as much now as I did when I was 14 years Old. I thought it was great being on a hit record, then in 2000 Bradenton Boys got together again & one of my best friends in life, Dickey Betts & yours truly was inducted into the Florida Hall of Fame, 10/20/2000 along with one of my idols the Great Bo Diddley, and another one of my Jacksonville Buddy's Artimus Pyle of Lynyrd Skynyrd. We did the same show in Miami, Fl. in July of 2001.
