I walked out on an ABB show at the Fox Theater in Atlanta once....

David Alan Coe opened for the ABB thst night.....

I was with a woman that was later to become my wife. It was our first date.


I felt soooo embarrased that I said....... let's go out for a drink.

David Allen Coe is a piece of human debris in my opion....and believe me, I'm no choir boy.


I understand Coe was a friend of Dickey's at the time.

If my question means everybody responds with their own thread, then I withdraw the question.

I'm a bit confused by this one. First off, who the hell is David Allen Coe? Never heard of him. Second, was he really that offenisive to cause you to walk out and miss ABB?

OK, I did some research. David Allen Coe is (was?) a renegade country singer, well respected as a songwriter, but spend most of his 20's in a penitentiary. So, I ask again: What did he do that night that was so offensive?

Peachstate, was that show at the Fox around 1980 or '81? If so I was at the same show. Didn't know who DAC was but he was rowdy. A bunch of bikers left after he played. It didn't cause me to leave though.

Johnny Paycheck had a hit w/it. ...on a side note...I'm proud to say I was thrown out of DAC's house one time...I insulted him.

There are probably guys out there who know more about DAC than I do, but here's my take. Some time past, he made one or two "X-rated" albums with lots of graphic sexual references (I made Linda Lovelace Gag), homophobia (Where'd I be without these homosexuals), misogyny (suck'em silly shirley), racism (take those sheets from off your bed, and let's go hang . . . ), glorifying drug use (lay me down some rails, boys), etc., etc.

You might see one or two of those songs pop up in a setlist now and then, but for the most part, I think they were basically novelty projects for him - sort of Dice Clay meets Merle Haggard - and not representative of most of his work. I've just recently purchased his two-disc "Live at Billy Bob's, Texas" which I highly recommend (and I'm not normally a country fan). This, in my opinion, is much more representative of his recent work and his career in general.

Here's a track from it:

True story. My folks attended a David Allen Coe concert once, and when the show was over the police found a dead body in the parking lot. The thing was, the person hadn't been killed there, but rather some bikers had brought the dude's body and left it in the parking lot.

I don't think a David Allen Coe concert would be the best place to take a girl out on a date.

When he was the opening act for the ABB at the Fox I couldn't believe all the biker guys and chicks that just got up and left after they saw DAC. I do remember him cussing a lot and saying he was in prison. My date was a little scared and I was too, even though I didn't admit it to her.
He is one wild dude. Google him and check out his picture!

In Brock's original thread I had posted that I walked out on David Allan Coe. Terrible show! Didn't even finish the first song before I hit the door.

I'm not sure walking out during the first song gives you the right to say the 'show' was terrible. How would you know?

Well pardon me for not posting it correctly for YOU. Ok....let's just put it this way not only did he suck but the venue sucked as well. Good enough? "Show" retracted. GEESH!

Yes Warren played with DAC. I have a show or two and the funny thing is the best part is when Warren sings IMO.

DAC can be on the edge for some people and some lyrics are pretty out there. So I can see some people being offended. Personally I would just go have a beer away from the band and wait till the set was over and then enjoy the ABB. That is where the story loses me a bit.

Totally useless post here, but in our local area there's a company named David Allen.

Thier trucks have on them "David Allen Co."

I get a kick out of it every time I see one drive past....

That Atlanta ABB show with DAC opening was when Warren met Dickey. And we all know where that lead. I sat front row in front of Gregg for that concert. DAC was not bad, everyone knew what he was bringing to the table. We sat through, Warren played some great guitar with him, got to hear DAC You Never Even Called Me By My Name, great song. The ABB was not great that night, Gregg could hardly walk, Dickey kept going back between the amps and snort some lines, right out in the open, incredible. The Keytar on Whipping Post may have been the highlight! Thats how bad the ABB had sunk that night.

David Allan Coe also wrote Please Come to Boston and Would You Lay with Me (In a Field of Stone). I've always thought of Coe as C&W's Bob Dylan. The man writes one helluva song. His best work in my opinion was on the Once Upon a Rhyme, Longhaired Redneck, I've Got Something To Say, Rides Again, Family Album, Tennessee Whiskey, and Human Emotions(Dickey plays on the song Suicide) albums.

Another thing about Coe is he is allergic to air conditioning, the man lives in Florida.
If you go to see him indoors during the Summer be prepared as it'll be hotter than the law allows as he won't play with the air on.

I concur with David Allen Coe.....have no use for him whatsoever. Like he cares....

Looking back, I realize this morning that my lack of enthusiasm for Warren is a personal bias.....because of his association with DAC. It's taken me a long, long time to warm up to Warren, and I can see now that this is why. I didn't want to like him.

Last night's show was pretty much a Warren show. And I thoroughly enjoyed it. Remembered thinking at the time last night, "This is the first time I really got into a Warren show." Wasn't completely a Warren show, but sure wasn't a Derek show.

Funny how the human mind works. Nothing happens without a reason.

I apologize for my harsh remark. Didn't mean to sound so negative. I don't want to make any enemies, especially over David Allen Coe! haha. His name sure does stir up discussions.
