"What's Happening" was the band after I left the BK's in the late 60's...
Of all the groups I've put together over the years...
This band really cooked with Ned and Jon on horns..Bobby Ramirez on drums..
Kenneth Herpin on guitar..Ronnie Folse on B3..Johnny(Soul)Mouton on bass and vocals...
with Me and Rose out front...
I can remember playing in Baton Rouge at The Coconut Grove
with people crammed in there like sardines doing The Ghost Of Otis Redding..
while down the street the BK's were playing...We went to see them on the break...
They might have had 20 people..I recall feeling good and bad at the same time..
Gary Dorsey(BK bass player) summed it up when he said
"You're kicking our ass..man!"...
It's a shame things go the way they go sometimes...but what the hey...
Anyway..we cut this album with Sam Montel in Houston in about 2 and a half hours..
I hope you enjoy it....
