George Riddle really adds to this wonderful Patsy Cline documentary/audio interview in Part 2.  For those of you who don’t know George Riddle, he was known for many things.  One of those great things was forming The Jones Boys who were the touring band from the beginnings of country music legend George Jones.  As I recall the story, at a hotel one night in Nashville, TN George Jones was lying on his back in a bed singing and playing on his guitar with many people around him listening and watching.  This was before Jones struck it big with the song “White Lightning”.  George Riddle happened to walk by Jones’s room and hear him singing.  Riddle liked what he heard.  He proceeded to go into that room and ended up harmonizing with Jones.  The two kicked it off and Jones asked Riddle to go on the road with him. Jones had been drinking and Riddle thought Jones was messing with him so he went back to his hotel room.  Riddle got a phone call not long after getting back to his hotel room and it was George Jones on the phone telling him to come on back and sing with him.  The rest, is music history. 

George Riddle spent many of his latter years playing the Grand Ole Opry with Country Music Hall Of Famer Bill Carlisle.

“I was saddened to hear of the passing of George Riddle (September 1, 1935 — July 20, 2014).  Although my time in knowing him was not as long as I would have liked it to be, I enjoyed every moment of our conversations.  He was truly the kindest of men.”

Patsy Cline’s husband, Charlie Dick introduced me to George Riddle several months ago and it was such a pleasure to meet a man who had lived such an interesting musical history.  From eating with Patsy Cline the morning of her plane crash and being a family friend to how he met George Jones and became Jones’s tenor singer.  It was a honor to know George Riddle and an honor to have him interview with us here at Music Charts Magazine in 2014.  We are unsure but this may have been George Riddle’s last interview.  Listen as Big Al Weekley talks with George Riddle and they both remember the great  George Jones.  You can also hear George Riddle in Part 2 of the Patsy Cline documentary at Music Charts Magazine’s website.
 
I hope you enjoy this interview with George Riddle as much as we enjoyed speaking with him.  We will remember you George Riddle.
