I heart George Jones. One of my favorite concert (or maybe non-concert) memories is seeing him with Tammy Wynette. Tammy opened, he came out for less than one song & a little moonwalk and they shut it down. He was loaded.
Oh, but you were mad about it at the time!
I got over it since I've seen him several times now sober. George was sober - I am sure that I had a couple of cold ones.
I used to work at Pizza Hut in Muscle Shoals back in my heyday ....and George Jones, who lived in MS at the time, called in a pizza. I knew who he was, of course, but I was too cool to let on. That was my attitude, anyway. So when he came in to pick-up, I was working the register; he just said, "I called in a pizza." "What's the name?" I said."Jones.""Excuse me?""Jones. GEORGE Jones.""Oh, right. [looking at names on boxes] George, you say? Oh, here it is.."Do you think my "not knowing him" humbled him a bit, made him a better person?? That was the idea.Doing my part to make stars better folks.
