Tim Dorsey, Writer of Florida based Crime Novels

Oh.... You know where I will be on Friday night! Tim Dorsey is one of our favorite writers. "Florida Roadkill" was required reading by all of our crew on Wildebeest III's passage across the Atlantic! The reason we made everyone read it was so people could understand the "inside" humor like: 'Beer Me'. Florida Roadkill

I met Gene Odom back in the early 80's when Allen Collins toured briefly as the Allen Collins Band, Gene was in charge of merchandise sales. I bought a Skynyrd tribute book that Gene wrote, he autographed it for me.
