RosCo And The Heads, that lovable trio of goof balls who happen to be in a Rock And Or Roll Band would like to wish everyone a wondrous holiday seasoning!

Be Ready To Rock in 2013 with The Heads and keep sending those snow chains, Easy Bake Oven bulbs, Papa Murphy coupons, the latest copy of Guitar Player, tater tots, Egyptian tanning lotion, and ROCK ON WITH ROSCO! ;-)

With temperatures soaring into the triple digits here lately in Okie Land, it just makes good sense to have a cold one at RUMORS while listening to the wacky Classic Rock and Blues trio!

'I can't wait to use the restroom at RUMORS, they have the best anti-bacterial soap of ANY bar in SE Oklahoma!' claims our hero.

RosCo And The Heads, THE Rock And Or Roll Blues Band from Hartshorne, Oklahoma, celebrates the Independence Day Weekend with a night of music at Lucky's located in the Highway Inn Express on 1217 South Geo Nigh Expressway in McAlester, OK , Saturday Night, July 2, 2011, starting at 9pm! On a recent promotional event at the McAlester Wal-Mart, Paul Gavigan, Vistalite Enthusiast and Bonham Channeler greeted fans, signed autographs, picked up eggs and bacon, and was cheered on by adoring crowds and mothers who wanted the Mighty Drummer to kiss their babies! RosCo, guitar player, eccentric singer who recently had his last name misspelled in a local newspaper, was tackled by a 73 year old Wal-Mart greeter, tasered, handcuffed, and led to a room where a full body cavity search was performed! Turns out the lad had been mistaken as a member of the notorious Charonister Family, a band of thieves who specialize in pinching charcoal briquettes! After a formal apology was issued, Ross 'RosCo'Chronister, limped back into the Super Center parking lot, to find Bass Man Lonnie Lay and Road Manager Mocus tanning on the roof of the soccer Mom van. They graciously took care of the fearful band leader by making sure he had a proper seat cushion. What a trip!
Work is nearing completion of the Zero Radius and Ice Cream Boy album, Lost In Hartshorne. The Red Dirt/Black Dirt music will be available for digital download very soon and a limited amount of CDs will be pressed so watch out for the imminent release! July and August will find RosCo And The Heads in the studio working on more music as well as partying at Rumors in Krebs, Oklahoma and September will see the band entertaining at the McAlester Choctaw Casino, so come out and see us!

Thursday June 16, 2011
After a layoff of nearly 1400 years, give or take nearly 1400 years, RosCo And The Heads will be taking the stage again. This weeks victim is the party people of Rumors on Highway 270 in Krebs, Oklahoma, starting at 9pm, Saturday June 18th! Many people, which is more than three, have asked, Where are RosCo And The Heads? Have they been busy fighting crime, ridding the world of evil, or just doing laundry? Actually, The Heads have been holed up at The Blue House recording new music. Road Manager Mocus reports, 'I think I saw Bigfoot and The Heads are recording.' Thank you Mocus for that in depth commentary! None of the other member of the bands were available since they were on a bathroom break and trying to figure out the new fangled indoor toilets that are now all the rage in Hartshorne! Many comments were overheard, some of them included; 'Where does the water go?' 'This handle is chrome!' There is no writing on this paper!' 'This seat is SO comfortable!' Progress is our friend! Expect new music available for download and on CD sometime in the very near future from the most dangerous band in Hartshorne. And keep checking back at the official website, Facebook, MySpace, Reverb Nation, and your local county court logs to see where the Rockin Blues Trio will be appearing next! Until we party again, keep cool, keep sending them Batman figurines, lemon square bars, lottery tickets, chain mail, and ROCK ON WITH ROSCO!

tour of Wilburville for the last two weekends, at The Green Frog Festival and

Wilburville again, but we need your help! PLEASE give, won't you?
With all the rain in SE Oklahoma, the band is considering either side occupations of life guards or rice farmers!

Lonnie Lay, Bass Dude, humanitarian, singer of 'I'm A Lumberjack And I'm OK' and all around Good Guy, says, 'I want mine own pair of Spiderman underwear!' Leader of the band and owner of a Spiderman towel RosCo questions, 'What does Spider Dude have to do with April Fools Day?'

2011, starting at 9PM! After the lads helped Santa save Christmas and gave the
jolly old elf tips on what to do with those darn Thanksgiving leftovers
(Ketchup!) they wandered into Mena, Arkansas for a New Years Eve Party! Many
thanks to the Morrell Brothers, Lora, Sheree, and Handsome Vinnie Rudman for
collecting enough money to bail the band out of jail! Lonnie Lay, bassman and
toilet paper enthusiast commented, 'The Polk County Pokie has better oatmeal
than Pittsburg County.' Drummer Paul Gavigan, recent owner of the flu
complained, 'There was no mint on my pillow!' Mocus, Road Manager, sex symbol
and Gov't Mule Groupie proclaimed, 'Let me out, I must tend to my vegetable
garden!' And our hero RosCo, fearless leader, and dust bunny magnet, sadly had
this to say, 'There is no ice cream in jail!'

...if we don't go see RosCo And The Heads at The Magic Wheels Motorcycle Event this Saturday Night!' exclaimed Paul, the youngest member of the band. 'But you are the DRUMMER for RosCo And The Heads!' explained Master Pizza Enthusiast and Road Manager Mocus. 'You HAVE to be there, so how are you going to die?' questioned Bass Man and Blade Runner Lonnie Lay. 'Who the hell is RosCo And The Heads?' asked befuddled ding-a-ling and guitarist RosCo.
Are you looking for something to do this Saturday night? Perhaps all of this air conditioning indoors has driven you mad long enough and you would love to see a rock and or roll band sweat and melt right before your very eyes! Fear not, help is on the way!

That Panda Bear loving trio, RosCo And The Heads, will be enjoying a Massive Party Weekend this weekend! Friday night finds The Heads Rocking And Or Rolling 9pm at Danny's Bar located at 908 Pennsylvania Avenue in beautiful downtown Hartshorne, Oklahoma! Jasmine and the gang have been taking their vitamin supplements all week so they can party down with The Heads and sell that wonder tonic beloved by all, beer! And then the fabled SnapperFest will be on for Saturday as the Heads head to the Arkansas border to party down at the legendary watering hole, Snappy Mac's in Big Cedar, Oklahoma! Parachutes have been packed, pancake mix is already in the van, and Mocus has even dug out his 'I Brake For Pizza' T-Shirt so he can regale the crowds with his tales of pizza pie indulgence! Four bands will be performing at the all day event with RosCo And The Heads slated to hit the stage at 8:30 so learn how to hum the theme to 'Deliverance' and drive out to Big Cedar and Party! But remember no weekend is complete without stopping in at Danny's Bar in Hartshorne first, on Friday, and tell Jasmine and the gang The Heads sent ya!
The heat has taken its toll on everyone and The Heads actually had to practice in their underwear on regular practice night, which is Monday. Shrieks, moans, grunts, and groans were heard quite a bit that evening and the band voted that guitar picker and coffee drinker RosCo has to wear a sports bra from now on. The band also voted that drummer and mouse repairman Paul must never wear a G-string. However, the band decided that bass man and resident blade sharpener Lonnie might actually make a decent underwear model. Poor Mocus passed out at the sight of Paul's G-String so little comment was heard from the pizza loving road manager.
Next weekend (August 14) is Magic Wheels' Bikes and Bands on Main Street in Wilburville, Oklahoma so mark your calendars! Keep sending that rawhide, drunken gnomes, pretty paper, pretty ribbons, of blue, ice cubes and ROCK ON WITH ROSCO!

Those flag waving musical icons from Hartshorne are back at the rock and or rolling this Saturday, July 3rd at Salt Creek Knife Company in beautiful downtown Calvin, Oklahoma, with Special Guest Aaron Lalli! Aaron and Head Master RosCo used to work at a used car lot together back in the turn of the century and have each devoured a whole lot of fried chicken, so it will be good for the two to get together and reminiscence. All restaurants in the Calvin area have been put on alert and extra napkins have been purchased as well as plenty of Tabasco. The band starts at 11am and will play until 3pm so come on and party!
Lawn Man Lonnie Lay, Bass Man, Singer, Beer Enthusiast, Humanitarian and easily the most tanned Head since George Hamilton, has been quoted as saying, 'SOO-WEE, GO HOGS!' This incident of course happened last weekend in Mena, Arkansas where the temps were hot and the bikes and babes were hotter. Drum Meister and Sex Therapist Paul Gavigan, who looked dashing in his hounds tooth and lederhosen, with spats on his feet, drummed mightily for the Hog Country crowd who showered him with praise and paper airplanes. 'I feel like a real boy!' exclaimed the latest drummer to fill The Head throne. Leader of the band RosCo was presumed lost as usual and sure enough, Road Manager Mocus found our hero at the local Baskin-Robins, face down in sherbet. Some things never change...
RosCo And The Heads are going to be rocking and or rolling at a place near you soon, so keep those cards and letters coming, dry ice, coffee mugs with disappearing clothes, bayonets, massage coupons, National Geographic DVD's, and ROCK ON WITH ROSCO! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, USA!

After a six month long sabbatical, that little ole' band from Hartshorne, RosCo And The Heads, are back in the saddle this weekend at the Hog Country Poker Run in Mena, Arkansas! Six months is a long period to go without rock and or roll and it is time that the rumors be put to rest. First off for the facts: former members of the band did indeed quit and joined a watermelon cult located, some say in Kansas, others say Texas. Either way they are replaced with two of the baddest cat herders on the planet, Paul Gavigan on drums and Lonnie Lay on bass and vocals! Lonnie and RosCo were once part of an elite band of chicken farmers located in western Latimer County and have been on plenty of missions together. And Paul was the former drummer for MuddGroove back in the 1870s and is rumored to be quite the sexual athlete, but everything you read on a bathroom wall cannot always be seen as gospel.
Second off, this new version of RosCo And The Heads may well be, up to this time, the most recent version of the band, ever! More than 7,000 different Heads have come and gone since the wild and wacky adventures of one Village Idiot, Rockin RosCo, who started the musical group back in the 1940s. It is indeed touching to witness the sheer tenacity of one individual who refuses to give up, even though he is deaf in one ear and cannot hear out of the other. Dates are stacking up, crates of celery have been purchased, and RosCo And The Heads are headed to a town near you! Keep sending those text messages, guitar porn, french fry coupons, and ROCK ON WITH ROSCO!
Tuesday February 9, 2019
The whispers and rumors can now be confirmed. After disbanding nearly ten years ago, the classic lineup of Blak Kat Bone have agreed to come together for one final show to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of McAlester Radio FM Rock 105's Boogie Down Blues Show hosted by SE Oklahoma's Guardian Saint of the local musician, John Peters! Guitarist and vocalist Aaron Lalli, drummer Robert Ott, and bassist/vocalist Ross 'RosCo' Chronister decided that the event was 'as good a reason as any to get together and play a song or two.' The Mighty Bone was THE premier local blues rock band in the late nineties and early double knots touring Oklahoma, Texas, and Arkansas, opening for Eric Sardinas and Kenny Wayne Sheppard as well as garnering a loyal fan base in the McAlester, Oklahoma area. In the early days of the internet revolution, one of their songs went to number 10 on the world mp3.com blues charts and praise both near and far were heaped upon the band for their unique 'Okie' brand of the blues which included a heady mix of Hendrix, Robert Johnson, Johnny Winter, stunning original music, and of course, SRV. Join the band one last time as they get together to celebrate a milestone with plenty of friends and fellow musicians April 10, 2010 at Salt Creek Knives in Calvin, Oklahoma. A Blues Jam will start at noon and all musicians are welcome to bring their guitars and amps to toast John Peters and highlights will be recorded for a later broadcast on his radio show. Somewhere in the early evening, Blak Kat Bone will hit the stage for a 10 or 15 song set and the night should come to a close early around 7 pm. For more info, watch this blog at http://MySpace.Com/BlakKatBone and visit http://SaltCreekKnives.Com and Keep It Blue!
Current mood: peaceful
It has been a wonderful year for RosCo And The Heads with some tremendous highs and some horrendous lows. Highlights included our Liberty Theatre Shows, The Thunder In The Valley Fourth of July Spectacular, where we played before ten thousand people, The Mena, Arkansas Tornado Benefit, Jam Nights at The now defunct Puma's Bar, Magic Wheels In Wilburton, OK, and a whole lot of bar gigs. Lows include the seemingly diminishing popularity of our classic rock music which has been evidenced by a lack of crowd support, but to be truthful, this economy has forced many of our faithful fans to stay at home. The closing of Puma's Bar hurt many local musicians and it was a shame that unforeseen circumstances and sheer bad luck became the downfall of the music establishment. The Puma family has also taken a horrible blow with the loss of beloved mother and cherished club owner, Elzie Puma. Her loss from cancer has been felt across the area and she will be missed so very much. Because of Ma Puma, RosCo And The Heads were able to thrive and have a place to practice and a place to jam. And local musicians had a place to get together and try out musical ideas. She supported local music and gave encouragement to musicians young and not so young. Thank you, Ma Puma. We miss you so, but your positive influence will carry us on.
Another low was the fact that no new music was released from The Heads except for two new demos, 'Shelter From The Storm' and 'No Goodbyes.' Hopefully 2010 will see some studio time and possibly a summer CD release. Local gigs have disappeared and Ken and Steven have joined a country band to make enough to pay bills and put food on their family tables. Music is our passion but it does cost money and families must be fed and they have to do these things to honor their responsibilities. We wish there were a way to make RosCo And The Heads profitable but this has never happened and it may never come to pass. But this dreamer is not done and will continue to Rock On, writing and recording songs, booking gigs, being goofy, and being a Love Buzzard to drunken women. And a special thanks to Jerry Gray for inviting me into his Jam Studio and letting me play guitar with him for an hour or two. Not to mention Paul Gavigan and T for their friendship and musical talk shop and Joseph Alexander for teaching me the Phrygian Scale. And DJ John Peters keeps us all alive here in SE Oklahoma by spinning our records on his radio show. My cousins Dave and David continue to put up with my bad jokes and my Mom and brother Rex are always supporting me, I am nothing without my faith, family, and friends. Please come and see RosCo And The Heads on their final show of 2009 and their first show of 2010 at The Eagles Club in Mena, Arkansas Dec. 31st starting at 9pm! Happy Holidays to all and keep sending them good ol' positive vibes and ROCK ON WITH ROSCO!

There will be a parade and bikers and all kinds of good family fun, so come out and support local music! RosCo got to sit in with old friends Sonny Reece, Vick Voss, and Floyd Speir last Friday Night at the Texanna Lounge in Checotah for a night of music, dancing, brawling, and drinking! The bartender cut RosCo off after four Diet Cokes because 'he had to drive' but good times were the order of the night and fun is still the very best therapy of all! The Heads still host Jam Night at Puma's Coffee Bar at 908 Penn in Hartshorne, OK every Sunday Night 5 to 9pm, so dust off your banjo or harp and come on down! And more shows are on the way including a triple bill November 7 at The Liberty Theatre in Hartshorne, OK with Special Guests Lonnie Lay and Juniper Point!

Yes you heard it right folks, Kenny Puma, shoe shine salesman and drummer for your favorite rock and or roll band RosCo And The Heads, is having a birthday! Kenny recently sat down on this reporter and reminisced about his childhood and how he came over on The Boat from Italy, accidentally tinkled on the Statue of Liberty, (they have a restroom in Venice that looks EXACTLY the same!) hitched a ride to Detroit on a pogo stick (there were four of us and none of us spoke Armenian) and his failed attempt at becoming a Detroit Tiger (The jock straps were too small). And of course there is the story of how he found Oklahoma (I made a wrong turn at Albuquerque) and joined RosCo and The Heads (I was told there was pizza) and on to fame and fortune! In his honor, Steven Ford, bassist and BBQ enthusiast for The Heads has decided to throw a Birthday Bash for him at Puma's Coffee Bar (formerly Puma's Bar) at 908 Penn in beautiful downtown Hartshorne, OK Saturday, July 25, 2009 starting at 7pm! And, since Kenny's lovely sister Sara Jo has a birthday as well in July, RosCo, demented ice cream enthusiast and guitar picker, decided to throw a party for her, as well! So bring Kenny and Sara Jo presents to the Birthday Bash which will include our old friend Lonnie Lay chipping in on the festivities and let us Rock And Or Roll Saturday Night!
Current mood: rockin
The Good Ol' USA is having another Birthday and RosCo And The Heads have another excuse to eat too much and play music, so they just can't WAIT to celebrate! The festivities begin Wednesday Night July 1 at Puma's Bar in Hartshorne, OK with the return of the Zero Radius and Ice Cream Boy Acoustic Show and Feather Duster Contest! Zero Radius, the more handsome of the duo questions, "Is that song in F flat or E?" Ice Cream Boy, the least handsome of the duo remarks, "Those clouds look like boobies!" What a pair! The lads start at 8 and play until 10 so get there early so you can tip them and tell them how good they sound! Thursday July 2 will find The Heads traveling down to Talihina to help the Choctaw Tribe celebrate the tenth anniversary of their new hospital! Iron Road opens the show at 5pm, The Heads take the stage at 6:30 or 7, and a big fireworks show will start at dusk, so come on and help The Choctaws celebrate at the Health Care Center! And finally, Saturday will find the Mighty Trio Rockin at Puma's Bar in Hartshorne starting at 7pm and don't forget Jam Night at 5pm every Sunday! RosCo And The Heads and Lonnie Lay wish each and every one of you a safe and Happy Independence Day, and to our friends all around the world, keep sending them sparklers, candy bars, pecan sandies, figs, olives, and ROCK ON WITH ROSCO!

The MOST well fed band in SE Oklahoma, RosCo And The Heads, are just tickled pink in anticipation of the chance to ROCK OUT at the historic Liberty Theatre this Saturday, April 25, 7:30pm! Located in beautiful downtown Hartshorne, Oklahoma at 826 Pennsylvania Avenue, The Liberty has been host to various performers and nutmeg throughout the centuries and The Heads are preparing for their assault in typical fashion! Steven Ford, Bass Man and Certified Indian Burn enthusiast, has entertained the thought of performing his patented LeSabre Dance at the event, but details remain sketchy at press time. Super Duper Detroit Dawg Kenneth P. Puma, president of the Pasta Boy Food Network and drum doctor, wanted to park his Econoline on stage and decorate it with tinker toys, but it looked like the colors might clash with the drapes, so this was struck from the list. And our old pal RosCo, guitar and nose picker extraordinaire, had to nix the flying through the air routine since his fishing line was in Lake Eufaula and could not return in time! Drat! Joining The Heads on the bill will be the legendary folk duo and ballroom dancers Zero Radius and Ice Cream Boy, the magnificent Red Dirt Cowboy Lonnie Lay, and introducing all the way from Wilburville, Oklahoma, Centerpoint! This is an ALL AGES ROCK CONCERT, tickets are only $5 at the door, so bring your mum, children and various outlaws and inlaws, but this IS Rock And Or Roll people, it will be LOUD! (Your mileage may vary) So keep sending them cream horns, chicken nuggets, earth day brownies, diet cola, flash lights, Hannah Montana bracelets, and ROCK ON WITH ROSCO!

Drummer and coffee pot collector Kenny 'Hercules' Puma has lathered up his leather drum throne in anticipation of the event and quips, 'Party after the gig at the drive-thru at Taco Bell at 3am!" Steven 'Thunder Fingers' Ford, bass man and meteorologists for the band says, 'It will rain somewhere Saturday night, but I don't know where.' And our MUCH MUCH older pal RosCo The Horrible has been quoted as saying, 'I think I ate too much.' What an incredible band! Kudos to the Anderson-Gavigan Band for covering us at Jam Night last Sunday as The Heads traveled to Mena to play music for Vince and Tracy's wedding!

Slap Yer Behind In 2009!
RosCo And The Heads,
the band worshiped by chicken farmers located in
Western Cleveland next on Jerry Springer,
somehow made it through Christmas without eating
a single hogs head cheese sandwich! Much o
presents and booty were presented to the band
from all over the land (especially from
Cleveland) and all were graciously accepted with
glee. There is enough wrapping paper to last
into the New Year and the paper airplane contest
should be quite shiny and bright, hmm there is a
song in there somewhere! Ken Puma, drummer and
noted auditorium on all things China buffet,
wanted to thank all of the fans from his house
that kept him cool during the hot Oklahoma
summer. Steven Ford, Bass Man and undisputed
champion tooth picker of the world, sends out
best wishes for a Happy New Year and hopes
everyone can give pizza a chance. And guitar
picker and hallucination enthusiast RosCo covets
more ice cream and wants everyone to 'Slap Your
Behind In 2009!'

Evidently Puma's Bar, the home of RosCo And The Heads and shrine to bar fly's every where, forgot to fill out their voter registration cards and have been forced to temporarily close.

RosCo And The Heads, that often mistaken
Pillsbury Dough Boy tribute band, is ready to Rock And Or Roll the last
full weekend of Rocktober! Friday night finds the merry trio at
legendary watering hole The 1896
on Choctaw Avenue in McAlester, Oklahoma. The band first played the
establishment in the early 90s when RosCo and Steven were wee lads and
Ken was still lost in Detroit, probably making big bucks not realizing
that someday he would soon go broke in a rockin blues band in Okie Land!
Alas the Heads have not realized a full gig in McAlester in quite some
time, but since the good ol statue of limitations has kicked in, it is
time to Rock McAlester! The party starts early at 8pm and lasts until
midnight so bring your milk duds and come on down!

Just a quick note to let everyone know that their favorite Merry Trio are off to play Mighty Rock and or Roll at LIVELY's place on Highway 2 South in Wilburville, Oklahoma, starting at 9pm Friday, July 18! The chicken wire has been weakening at the night spot and the last time The Heads played there, a few beer bottles got through and clocked Steven and RosCo right between their legs!

medical expenses and the good people of McAlester and SE Oklahoma showed their
generosity and support. Get better Tonya!
Tonight will see the return of Zero Radius and Ice Cream Boy with the Detroit Dawg at Jackie's Alibi in beautiful downtown Hartshorne! This acoustic act is an experiment by Lonnie and RosCo to try and get women's clothes to fall off! 'In my experience, money has been the only thing that I have been able to utilize to get women naked, but I hope to use a G string or chord to entice said nudity.' explains lawn jockey Lonnie Lay, aka Zero Radius. 'If we figure this out, we can sell the idea and buy more ice cream!' exclaims Der RosCo, aka Ice Cream Boy. Ken Puma, aka Detroit Dawg, will run sound and had this to say, 'Turn it up!'

Friday night found us at Lively's in Wilburton where the women are insane! Saturday night at Puma's Bar was fun too as our old friend Lonnie Lay helped us out and we jammed into the wee hours! Monday night was the bestest as The Heads, Jerry Grey, Lonnie Lay, and MuddGroove tore it up for Jammin' John Peters' Eighth Annual Boogie Down Blues Show Celebration! Ken Puma, jockey shorts enthusiast and drummer for the Heads recorded and engineered for the Thursday broadcast and the phone lines at Rock 105 were flooded with calls asking for tax rebate checks! Steven 'Godzilla' Ford who is the bass man of the Heads and a night clapper told his Dad howdy on the air and that he would have the car back before midnight! And our hero RosCo who recently converted his computer into a veg-o-matic had to admit that he was so happy to be back in the hurricane!

Party! After getting rained out and another cancellation due to circumstances
beyond their control, The Heads rocked out with Special Guest Lonnie Lay at
Jackie’s Alibi in beautiful downtown Hartshorne, Oklahoma! The women were crazy,
the drinks were cold and the band was hot! Ken Puma, drummer and part time
tidily-wink enthusiast proclaimed the night a success and a good excuse to get
naked! Steven Ford, mighty bass man and Grounds Keeper Willie Fan reflected on
the nights’ festivities and decided that the Heads were back and whipped cream
was what he forgot to pick up at the grocery store earlier in the day. And our
hero RosCo had so much fun that he lost his underwear but was still able to
celebrate with 2am ice cream!
Saturday night will find the Heads mixing it up at the Grand Opening of Puma’s Bar (formerly Ameci’s) ALSO conveniently located in beautiful downtown Hartshorne, so come on down and check out the old guys of Rock And or Roll, bring your pickle coupons, wear socks, and ROCK ON WITH ROSCO!
Wednesday, March 12, 2008-Hartshorne,
Oklahoma is a quiet little town, with one and a half stoplights, a couple of gas
stations, a Dollar Store, a few churches, and 14,000 bars. After a layoff of
nearly nine months, two of those bars have decided to let ROSCO AND THE HEADS
play Mighty Rock And Or Roll in their establishments! The Heads were just as
surprised as anyone else, but they inked the deal before the owners could sober
up, so come Party with ROSCO AND THE HEADS Tuesday March 18 at Jackie’s Alibi
and Friday March 21 at the Grand Opening of Puma’s Bar, both located in
beautiful downtown Hartshorne! If you don’t know where the bars are, just drive
to Hartshorne, roll down your window, and LISTEN!
January 17, 2008-Since I have not been on a stage since June of 2007, I am really missing performing live and drunk women! I have been writing and recording and I did send one song to John Peters at Rock-105 in McAlester, but the song, 'Whole Lotta Lovin' is not really indicative of the kind of direction I am going with my music. Still, I feel like I owe John a full CD of blues based music in the vein of the very popular '4 Blues' disc from a few years back, and I hope to get the project done in 2008. At the same time I have a more modern rock sound in mind for my next 'Heads album which I probably will record by myself as well since I enjoy piddling around in my studio and have no one to blame but myself if something is not right; I might as well beat myself up for a reason if I continue to berate myself anyway, don't you agree? I have also been working with a youngster who has talent but we are just now in the development stages and I do not want to say more since he is a good soul and he does not need any more pressure than already exists. We'll save that for later! Thanks so much for all the kind words about my music and I do enjoy and appreciate the 'Get Well' soon emails and notes and I hope to be able to party with ya'll somewhere down the line. Keep listening and support your local music scene!
December 26, 2007-My health is still not the best but I have still been making music. John Peters of Rock 105 in McAlester, OK played a cut from my new project, The Blues Farmers a week before Christmas and will play it again on his show Thursday Dec. 27 so tune in from six to eight pm to catch the track, 'Whole Lotta Lovin.' (Make sure and visit John at myspace.com/boogiedownbluesshow) I have a lot of blues and folk music laying around that I want to record and push out before I start on my next modern rock recording, so that is why the new project is called the Blues Farmers featuring Delbert McDiaper. Delbert is an alter ego of mine so ya'll treat him right and look for a full length CD from him by Spring 2008. I already have the bulk of songs ready to go for a RosCo and The Heads album, which I will also try and get out in 2008, but we shall see about that as well. I may not be performing live anymore, but I will make music until the day I die. Thanks so much to the good folks that have supported me over the years and I wish everyone the Greatest 2008 ever!
JULY 10, 2007-SEMI-RETIREMENT WANNABE!-Well, it looks like our hero has to take a little vacation for a while due to that good ol' diabetes and COPD. I gave the band their pink slips and they have been playing music with other groups for quite some time anyway, so at least they have jobs and will not go hungry. I plan to record some tunes and get better so perhaps I can jam in the future and all you fine folks can come see me and have a good time. Keep checking back here for the latest news and new music is on the way, I ain't dead yet! Keep sending those warm wishes and nude email and ROCK ON WITH ROSCO!

The big Saint Paddy's Day Party at the Eagles Club in Mena was amazing as those people just get crazier every time! Green was everywhere and the ladies made things incredibly fun and the party back at the motel continued into the wee hours! Steven Ford, bass man and mild mannered man of steel had one complaint; 'Kenny ate the mint off my pillow!' Yes folks, we have an embarrassing secret that we can keep from you no longer; Our Kenny is a mintaholic! Therapy, interventions, dental floss, and threats of cutting off tanning salon privileges have not worked, so keep the mighty Detroit drummer in your thoughts and smiles as he needs help! A few days later, The Heads jammed with Lay'd Back and 2 Steps West at Babes Club in Krebs, Oklahoma! Old friend and riverboat gambler Steve McGillberry was there on the keys participating in the jam and he proceeded to regale the band with tales of his culinary prowess and fifteen different ways to tie a tennis shoe! And just this last Tuesday, history was made as the afore mentioned line up plus local band Bucket Mouth and Jerry Grey performed live over streaming internet for the 7th annual DJ John Peters Boogie Down Blues Show! The Blue House was invaded like it hadn't been in a long time and the broadcast was heard all around the world! Kay Peters, wife and personal trainer of John whipped up a batch of cupcakes, spaghetti, lil' smokies, veggies and even a half gallon of Rocky Road for RosCo! Except for a few technical glitches and a streaker, the show went well and Uncle RosCo and the Great Italian Vulcan Preston are rubbing their hands in anticipation of NEXT YEARS party! And FINALLY the big event happens this Friday, April 27 as Lay'd Back, 2 Steps West, and RosCo And The Heads take over the Liberty Theatre for an all ages show! Come on out and support your local blues and classic rock bands and for more info, click HERE! The evening gets started at 7pm with doors opening at 6, so get there early and get a good seat and cheer these guys on! Keep on keeping on and ROCK ON WITH ROSCO!
MARCH 10, 2007-THEY'RE BACK!-After a long deserved vacation, RosCo And The Heads are back on the air! Many cards, letter, emails, paternity suits, and birthday suits have been received, all wondering and inquiring what have The Heads been up to? Well...Steven Ford, bass man and sometime vegetable bouncer has been involved with a top secret chemistry experiment which has somehow allowed him the super powers of a yodeler! Details are sketchy and of course details are most secret, but Steven can now yodel better than Barbara Streisand! 'I do not mean to brag...' claims the Steven Ford one, 'but I can blow Babs away in a yodeling contest.' Indeed, let us hope and pray that we will never have to witness such a debacle, EVER, Steven! Elsewhere, drummer and eye drop salesman Ken Puma is celebrating ever since he figured out how to mail his seventeen year old daughter to Michigan! 'It was not easy!' admits the Italian drum king of love. 'First, I kept licking the stamps and they would stick to my tongue and then my daughter kept running away, and she did not fit well into the mailbox, but we got 'er done!' We suspect the Michigan post office does not do things quite like we do in the south, so bets are that more postage will be due! Meanwhile our hero and fearless leader RosCo has taught himself how to fry bacon while naked! 'I got the idea from a welding commercial.' explains the disturbed guitarist and vocalist for The Heads. 'I just wear a welding helmet placed in a strategic position and I have all the protection I need!' Will this start a revolution in the fried food industry? Stay tuned!
The My Space website now features RosCo And The Heads songs for sale! Yep, your favorite band is now signed to SNOCAP, an independent distribution label for artists such as The Heads so go snatch up some Head tunes for only .99¢ each before they go bankrupt! The new album is still being worked on and when it is ready, it will also be featured at SNOCAP as well as some music from the back catalogue of RosCo And The Heads that has never been available ever in the digital format. The Heads are also very happy to announce that negotiations are underway to be featured with the iTunes music service, so The Heads are coming very soon to an iPod near you!
The band has been preparing for the celebration of the Irish at The Eagles Club in beautiful downtown Mena, Arkansas March 17! The party should be quite the blowout as the good people of Mena are party athletes and RosCo And The Heads are prepared! The last party in Mena lasted all year, so come out and celebrate all things green! Festivities begin at 8pm, but all indicators point to a dawn patrol party, as is usual with them crazy folks in Mena! Keep those cards and letters and emails coming, send more layer cakes, donuts, clicky top pens, whitewall cleaner, moist towelettes, and ROCK ON WITH ROSCO!
