Photographers notes: Emmylou Harris and the Rooster, June, 1977 Backstage, Austin Opry House. The opening of the Opry House under Willie and Tim's ownership was celebrated with Willie and Waylon and Emmylou performing...So, I hesitate to tell this the way it happened, but I'll go ahead in the name of accurate journalism: Sometime during the festivities one of the stagehands grabbed me and said, "you've got to come with me! Emmylou is stroking Bee's cock!" "huh?", I said, "why would they want me there?" "Just come on!", he said, and escorted me to the little greenroom and opened the door to the sight you see. A visual gag, most inappropriate for such an ethereal being as Emmylou, but kinda funny nevertheless.
