Entertaining Country Music Artist Mel Tillis has passed on at age 85. He sure used his disability to his advantage, to entertain and make people smile.

He liked my wife. At the Hodag Country Festival, sometime in the late 70s or early 80s, I worked with a band that was his opening act. We were backstage to watch his show and when he finished he went directly to his bus and didn't sign autographs or take pictures with his fans. However, he did ask his road manager to ask my then girlfriend if she'd like to see his bus. Sure she would. She was the only non- band member on the bus that day. There was no funny stuff. Or, if there was, my wife never sued him. lol!
