Mr. Cabo Wabo

Mr. Cabo Wabo and a couple of his buddies were the first guys to wear red wigs and call themselves Redheads in the early days in Cabo and at shows I've done around the country. He will be missed.

He is also one of the only people that ever drank the whole drink menu at the Cabo Wabo, but he did pass out and had to be rolled out! He was a very Big guy.

I must add something.
Martin Garcia aka Chickletboy was the first Redhead to wear a red wig. All the rest copied off of him. Including Mr. Cabo Wabo.

A Picture of Sammy and Mr. Cabo Wabo (Jim Goodwin) would go great with this. Somebody send them a pic of them.
This is why I am a Redhead. Sammy never forgets his own. This touched my heart. Thanks Sammy for Caring.
