Jack Lauterback got his start as a writer, blogging about his adventures in the Richmond bar scene. His funny and honest articles about bartending, drinking, and relationships led to a column in Style Weekly, where he stayed for years.

After playing drums several years with Carl Perkins, Fluke joined Cash's band, which he never left until Cash stopped touring in the late 1990s. As one of the original members of the Tennessee Three, Fluke talks with Colin about the early days at Sun, discovering Bob Wootton, and what he's going to do on his 100th birthday.
