I was reading your Keith Palmer page. I worked with Keith for about a year or better.....
when he first came to town. He was the keyboard player and I was the bass player for Marty
Martel in those days. We were room mates on the road.... I was there the night Keith met
his second wife (Brenda) at the Yellow Rose in Des Monies Iowa. Keith was a great
singer..... we had a very good vocal trio at one time. I think I still have a bunch of
photos from those days... of us on a cruise and some promo shots of the band.
When Keith played his show case in Nashville..... I played bass for him that night.
I remember calling him (collect) when he got his first (b side single) cut with Charley
Pride... just to congratulate him.
We drifted apart over the years.... I never knew Keith was sick. I moved to White House
TN.... in '96 and didn't know Keith lived there also.
Then I heard of his passing. I felt bad I didn't get to see him one last time.
Just thought I would add my 2 cents worth.
