lesson: beware of dynamite caps

Roy Thackerson
“Fingerless Fiddler”
Ovella “volumn 1″(sic)

From the Back Cover:

If you have never met Roy or listened to him play his fiddle you have certainly missed out on a real treat. He is amazing. As you may not know, he lost his fingers when a dynamite cap exploded in his hand, destroying his fingers and doing great bodily damage. This did not destroy his desire and determination to play the fiddle.

–Roy Acuff

MAILBAG:

I typed in my name and I not only found my website, but saw my album cover in your collection of ‘Collectible Records.’ I lived in a time when children were “cruel” and laughed and made fun of other children with deformities or handicaps. Society has changed, Thank God, toward any person with a disability or handicap.

I lost the fingers on my left hand and the sight in my left eye, at the age of 5, when a dynamite cap blew up in my hand. Nothing but the grace of God let me live. I was a pretty hard-headed kid and was determinded to let nothing stop me from doing whatever it is that I chose to do. My entire family was musically inclined, so I decided I did not want to be left out of our family musicals. Many dedicated hours were spent on my guitar.

It was only at the age of 30 that I decided I could play the fiddle and my ‘good friends’ told me, ‘you can’t play the fiddle, you’re fingerless!’ After 5 years of learning to play the fiddle, I became ‘The Fingerless Fiddler.’

Now, at 65 years of age, I am still playing my guitar and entering many flat top picking contest. I also play the fiddle in many fiddle contests and judge at State Fiddle Championships. I am also booked for various events as special entertainer thoughout the United States.

May God Bless You and Your Site………

What I’ve always thought was hilarious about this cover is the fact that the BEFORE and AFTER pics seem to have been taken five minutes apart.

Strangely I can only find a few vague references online to Mr. Phelps wrestling career.
