I saw Johnny Paycheck 30 years ago at the Choctaw Pow-wow, near Philadelphia, Mississippi, where those terrible civil rights TV shots of dogs and water hoses were used on people. He shortly thereafter was in a bar and a weapon misfired he was carrying and the judge refused to accept his plea which included huge expenses taking care of his deathly ill wife and put him in jail, a case of bad judgment, in my opinion. No longer touring he probably went bankrupt from the incarceration and the notoriety which is a shame he was a “good” guy trying to keep people off “bar-stool mountain”. Iron Eyes Cody was there too, had just lost his wife, the daughter of New York State’s famous archaeologist, Arthur C. Parker. I wonder if “Iron Eyes” was from there, some Italian looks French, early French settlers are still represented in the Choctaw traditional dress. They had a Choctaw beauty pageant, too. They were making truck wiring harnesses for GMC on the reservation. Keep on truckin’
