Some fun facts from Richard Bowden, below…and, if you’d like to read more, click here:

[6] 2001 through 2002

“After touring again early in 2001 with Don Henley, I signed on to do the
Eagles European tour as a guitar/bass tech. I also performed as an auxiliary
guitarist on stage during “Hotel California”. The tour ended late summer and
I returned to my City Counseling duties at home, also helping with our annual
Lion’s Follies (a local variety show that was produced by my father for many
years) and our Wildflower Trails of Texas Festival. In the three years I’ve
been back home, I’ve brought in celebrity friends to participate in the
festival; Kenny Rogers in 2000, Don Henley in 2001 and Jackson Browne in ’02.
As 2002 kicked off, I managed to slip into the recording studio and complete
a new CD before leaving for my summer job on the Eagles North American Tour
which started in May and ended in early August with five Don Henley solo
shows. At this writing, my new CD entitled “Big Bad Johnson” is in the
process of being released. I am at home awaiting eminent fame and fortune
and scheduling some weekend performances with my band, Moon and The Starz,
of which two members were with me in the Roger McGuinn Band in the mid ‘70s”

Jump to 2012:

“Also, my fellow guitarist, John Early, and I are doing a few house concerts as The Bowden/Early Experience. You can see some clips on YouTube by searching the Bowden/Early Experience. Then, Keb’ Mo’ came back for the T-Bone Walker Blues Fest this year (2012) and Jackson Browne came in November for his third appearance at Music City Texas Theater. The year ended with a bang with Robert Earl Keen’s Fam-o-lee Christmas tour kicking off at Music City Texas Theater in early December, which is good, because the bang we had planned for New Year’s Eve was canceled by rain.”
