This week, Augie Meyers reflects on his astounding musical career, collaborating with some of the biggest names in music. Auggie was just a kid growing up in San Antonio, Texas when he met and became instant friends with Doug Sahm, with whom he formed The Sir Douglas Quintet. Augie always on the VOX organ. That was his sound. It would carry him all over the world, with hits like “She’s About A Mover,” and “Mendocino.”
When the Quintet ran its course they formed Texas Tornados with Freddy Fender and Flaco Jimenez. Augie would later record two albums with Bob Dylan – ‘Time Out of Mind’ and ‘Love and Theft.’ He also recorded ‘Wicked Grin’ with John Hammond and Tom Waits, and worked in Canada with Doug, Amos Garrett and Gene Taylor.
