Village Sound & The Counts
Hi George. My name is Connie Simpson. I live in Nashville but grew up in Memphis. My husband, Richie Simpson (now passed away) played drums for both of these groups for years. He was also a photographer. He and I took and developed these pictures. If you can use them on your site, please let me know. He was the drummer on "Sally's Got a Good Thing". He was also the staff drummer at TMI Recording Studio and worked for Steve Cropper and Jerry Williams. Please let me know what you think. Thank you so much! PS I listen to your station everyday and absolutely love it! I met you years ago at "Millington Beautiful".
