Here's a great piece from Deadline Detroit
: Jeannie Koda, widow of Brownsville Station
frontman and old-school All Music Guide contributor Cub Koda
, talks about his life and music for the first time since his passing in 2000.
“He knew more about music than he did anything,” Jeannie says. “That’s why I drove when we went on trips. He was too distracted thinking about music. He couldn’t tie his shoes or balance a checkbook to save his ass – all the regular things people do. But give him a guitar, an amp, and an audience, and he would blow you away.”
The story, posted in honor of what would've been Koda's 65 birthday, also offers insights from folks like Commander Cody
player-turned-alt-country artist Bill Kirchen
