Welcome to The Happy Texan, The Adventures Of A Rock & Roll Truck Driver


Adventure Driving Trucks in the music industry



I just finished your book late last week. Thank you for writing it. You have shed light on an untold aspect of the music bid'ness that really is quite astounding in its scope and effort. It gives due credit to all those who move mountains of gear, setup and support the touring concert scene. Well done sir. A very enjoyable story. Thank you for sharing it.

Finest Regards,

Dan Skret, Bid'ness man



Woven into the haps and mis-haps of life on the road, is a long chain of synchronicities that lead to a personal awakening of spiritual and human awareness where we discover our own path of destiny, and find that in gratitude, friendship, and contentment, a life well spent.

Reading "THE HAPPY TEXAN", is the next best thing to a personal visit, sitting face to face with a seasoned story teller and hearing first hand, adventures of a man who saw, worked with, and personally knew,  some of the most famous bands we all grew up with, from Willie to Pink Floyd. Thank you Michael for writing such a good story. CONGRATULATIONS on a really fine book!
