The Outlaws have had a major impact on rock and roll since their first album. Who has never heard ‘Green Grass and high Tides’ just to mention one hit out of many. The Outlaws are a staple in rock classics just like Lynyrd Skynyrd’s ‘Sweet Home Alabama” , The Allman Brothers Band ‘Rambling man’ or ZZ Top’s ‘La Grange’ indeed the Outlaws have left their mark. The Outlaws should be recognized for their contributions, just as the previously mentioned bands have been.

If you were to ask the average music fan to name a Southern Rock band, they would probably give you Skynyrd, Allman Bros, Charlie Daniels or maybe Marshall Tucker. But the one band that these and other well known bands dreaded to see open for them was THE OUTLAWS !! They would come out and just smoke musically...no stage show, no props, no jumping around, just tight, toe-tapping music. I know, I saw them start from a local Tampa bar band in 1972 up to their present form in 2009, and they still blow headliners off the stage! Not only have they stood the test of time, they have left their stamp of rock music, particularly Southern Rock from the US and in Europe. They must be inducted thir coming year.!!

I saw The Outlaws in what would be their laat Northern California appearance. It was the 2007 Volunteer Jam at Konocti Harbor in Clearlake. The Outlaws were the opening band, Marshall Tucker was second and Charlie Daniels was last. It was on June 9, 2007. Three months later on September 9, Hughie Thomasson, lead singer and guitarist for the Outlaes, would die of a heart attack.
