Phil Lee Durham North Carolina childhood TV prodigy, erstwhile Truck driver to the Rust Never Sleeps Tour, last drummer for The Flyin Burrito Brother and the only living artist on the Shanasee Record label once he finally came out from behind the drums at the age of 50 during his East Nashville years (when is the book coming Phil?). The Mighty King Of Love now lives on the West Coast, he has been 5 years making his cap stone album with old friends Crazy Horse.
