You gotta like Augie Garcia. Well, your criteria might be different, but I gotta like Augie Garcia. For starters, early in his career he decided his professional attire would include shorts. Year round. In Minnesota. What a nut. The even better factoid is that he once opened for Elvis, and following his performance, after playing only two songs, he and his family all left before Elvis played.
Sometime referred to as the godfather of Minnesota rock 'n' roll, it would be hard to argue. He was right there on the cusp, when rhythm and blues begat rock 'n' roll. Wailing, honkin', skin bashing, meat and potatoes rock 'n' roll. Wearing shorts and splittin' the scene.
