Alonzo was either born or hatched (there is some disagreement) near A. Buzzard, as he signs his name, started his career in music at about the age of 14, playing country bassoon with Don Waynek & The Green Bullets. A year later he took a sojourn into gospel music as a piano tuner with Elder Virgil Cranberry & The Disciples. Elder Virgil's daughter, Innocent Sue, was the piano player, and he and Alonzo came to parting of the ways when he discovered Alonzo was tuning more than just her piano.

Posted on Thu., Feb. 28, 2013 - 8:45 AM


Dearest Son, I'm writing this slowly because I know you can't read fast. We don't live where we did when you left home. Your dad read in the newspaper that most accidents happen within 20 miles of your home, so we moved. I won't be able to send you the address because the last family that lived here took the house numbers when they moved so they wouldn't have to change their address. This place is really nice. It even has a washing machine. I'm not sure about it. I put a load of clothes in and pulled the chain. We haven't seen them since. The weather isn't bad here. It only rained twice last week; the first time for three days and the second time for four days. Last week it was so windy our chicken laid the same egg three times....
Posted on Fri., Feb. 15, 2013 - 12:21 AM


 


About that coat you wanted me to send; your Uncle Billy Bob said it would be too heavy to send in the mail
with the buttons on, so we cut them off and put them in the pockets.
Bubba locked his keys in the car yesterday. We were really worried because it took him two hours
to get me and your father out.



Your sister had a baby this morning, but I haven't found out what it is yet so I don't know if you are an aunt or uncle.

Uncle Bobby Ray fell into a whiskey vat last week. Some men tried to pull him out but he fought them off and drowned.
We had him cremated, he burned for three days.

Three of your friends went off a bridge in a pickup truck. Butch was driving. He rolled down the window and swam to safety.
Your other two friends were in the back. They drowned because they couldn't get the tailgate down!

There isn't much more news at this time.. Nothing much out of the normal has happened.

Your Favorite Aunt,
Mom

Ma old pall Alvin Priestly called me up on the telephone a while back, all excited. We discussed all sorts of things like when my mama wrote him shook up and a few others that  he went on to sing and wiggle his hips to, the girls just plain crazy fer him.  He said for me  no to tell nobody about it & where he was at, so I didn't, but mama may have let the cat outta the bag....

I'll tell you for shore, that boy was a piana-playin' son-of-a...uh, well, he was real good in fact better than what my mamma was and she teached him real well. The state where he was born, Lewisiana, and not many people know this, was once owned by his family. I talked 'em into tradin' it to the Newninted States for a piana so Johnny Lee could learn how to play with my mammas help. When he was a just a kid, I would sit at that piano for hours at a time, showin' him how to play the buggie-wuggie. He messed up there for a while when he went out to Harleywoods and started tellin' jokes with that Dean Marston guy. I kept after him about it, and I finally got him to come back home and play the piana. If I hadn't-a made him come back, he wouldn't-a never wrote that song about a whole lotta' chickens in the barn, so I guess I did the right thing

Ok so here it is for the next few years I’ve worked just about everywhere in a variety of occupations: nuclear isotope taster, Air guitar tuner in the opera house and as a stand in for the not yet born super hero Django Rhinepart. 2013 was a year I preferred to forget I spent most of the year learning yet unwritten songs whist performing as Elvis double.
It was a job, not a career but I got to play the guitar, so not all was lost, my mamma was playing piano and papa the swanny whistle in tune to the unwritten music I was working on.
His masters voice got wind of this and came chasing to get a contract signed, this was due to be released on Doowap records, the record was on the market the following week. The record sold well over 9 copies ... enough to put me in the charts in, North Mongolia, and firmly established me as a true legend and super star in his the music industry.

I asked him why, and he said it was to save the world from jazz. Well, I'll tell you, I felt honoured. It ain't everybody that gets picked by a monkey to save the world, you know. I got my old guitar out of the pawn shop and started runnin' all over the country teachin' people how to play rock n roll. First, I went down to Teksis and showed it to Buddy Haley and Rory Orbertson. Buddy moved off up north somewhere and started a band called the Comix, and I think Rory went up to Menfis. They told me why didn't I just start doing it myself, so I did. That's when I cut 'Love Me Strange', and you know the rest.
Posted on Mon., Oct. 29, 2012 - 7:13 AM


I guess y'all know I started rock n roll. It come to me in a vision one night in 1949 when I was tryin' to go to sleep. I was havin' a lot of trouble gettin' to sleep, and that night, I was countin' spider monkeys jumpin' over a wheelbarrow. Most people count sheep, I think, but wool makes me itch. I tried countin' chickens crossin' the road, but I found out I was allergic to feathers. Then, I tried possums crossing the road, but they kept gettin' run over by trucks. So, that night, I was countin' spider monkeys. The nineteen-hundred and thirty-fifth monkey was playin' a guitar and singin', and I said, "Monkey, I ain't never hear nothin' like that before". He said, "It's called 'rock n roll' and you're supposed to go out and show it to the world".

If anybody'd like to buy tickets in advance, send me twenty dollars and two hacksaw blades, and I'll send you a ticket one of these days.

Hey Alonzo, as I write this, I see my ad that NuMuBu was so kind to put up. I still think of myself as the "Michelin Man" given Cliff's mention of me as the "Pro Tools Go To Guy" a little embarrassing to me but at least I can joke about it. No one has ever done something like that for me. I've received many endorsements in my time but to have a website go out of it's way to make me successful and to help NuMuBu where I have real friends who run the site, was just an added incentive to help them out with something different and help me out by forcing me to learn how to post and record videos an hour long that would still fit on youtube by converting it to a quicktime movie that is compressed enough to still hear most everything. Thanks for being a loyal fan, follower dude. I appreciate it. Hope you are doing OK and that life is treating you with compassion and kindness. Best, Scotty

Thanks again, Jerry Donn! He's been tellin' me how much y'all like rock n roll. He said I should tell some stories about the old days when I was runnin' around with Jimmy Cash and all them other boys. Me and Jimmy, I'll bet, turned over more sh...er, outdoor toilets than anybody in northeast Arkansas. Then people started puttin' em inside sorta' put us outta' business. When Jimmy heard about it, he said "You mean, they do it in the house??" Only he didn't say "do it". (Bobby Donn told me not to use no dirty words 'cause the Queen might read this.)

Well, it wasn't long after that, he come over to my house one day with this song he wrote for his mama called 'That's Okay, Mother'. He wanted me to sing it and cut it on a record. He said he knew it would be a big hit and he was too busy hookin' up lectrit things to be a star. He said if I'm come over to Sam Phelps' Sun recordin' place, he'd get Skippy Morris and Bobby Black to play on it, but I couldn't go 'cause I had to wax my pickup truck. I just told him to sing like me and he'd do alright. Boy, it's a good thing I told him that. Why, I'll bet he sold 8 or 900 copies of that record. 'course, if I'd-a done it, it woulda' sold at least a thousand 'cause my mother woulda' bought that many.

I saw my old buddy, Paul Burlington, a while back. He come to visit me one Sunday. You remember Paul, don't you? He played with that Bernie and Johnny Dorsey when they had their big band. He said that 'Love Me Strange' would be worth at least a pound a copy over there. I don't know exactly how many dollars it takes to weigh a pound, but I'll bet it is a lot.

One time, in St. Lewis, I carried Chick Barry's guitar. I made it almost a half a block before these two big guys caught me and made me give it back. I guess they figgered Chick could carry his own guitar. He appreciated me tryin' to help, though, 'cause he told me if ever he saw me again, he'd have his boys take me for a ride. I thought that was real nice of him, but I rode in one of them big cars one time, so I wasn't too excited about it and I never did go back to take him up on the offer.

Another old boy I learnt how to play was that Luther C. Perkings. I shore am proud of him, too. After I showed him a few things, he went right to work playin' lectrit guitar with Jimmy Cash, then he wrote that song about "don't nobody mess up my shoes" and made enough money to get his own band. I told him if he'd just wear rubber knee boots all the time, like I do, he wouldn't have to worry about gettin' his shoes messed up. I just wash mine off with the garden hose. If somebody steps on 'em when I'm out somewhere dancin', most places got a boot washer in the bathroom. That's what I use it for, anyway. You can just stick your boot down in the round thing with the water in it, then you turn this little handle, or some of 'em have a chain you pull, and the water gushes in and cleans off your boots purty as a whistle.

I tried countin' chickens crossin' the road, but I found out I was allergic to feathers. Then, I tried possums crossing the road, but they kept gettin' run over by trucks. So, that night, I was countin' spider monkeys. The nineteen-hundred and thirty-fifth monkey was playin' a guitar and singin', and I said, "Monkey, I ain't never hear nothin' like that before". He said, "It's called 'rock n roll' and you're supposed to go out and show it to the world". I asked him why, and he said it was to save the world from jazz. Well, I'll tell you, I felt honored. It ain't everybody that gets picked by a monkey to save the world, you know.

First, I want to thank my real good buddy, Gary Donn, for letting me write in his magazine. Me and him been friends for a long time. He shore is a good feller, and I learnt him everything he knows. Thanks again, Jerry Donn! He's been tellin' me how much y'all like rock n roll. He said I should tell some stories about the old days when I was runnin' around with Jimmy Cash and all them other boys. Me and Jimmy, I'll bet, turned over more sh...er, outdoor toilets than anybody in northeast Arkansas. Then people started puttin' em inside sorta' put us outta' business. When Jimmy heard about it, he said "You mean, they do it in the house??" Only he didn't say "do it". (Bobby Donn told me not to use no dirty words 'cause the Queen might read this.)

I was asked by many old friends of myself the great Alonzo Buzzard, to guest-write articles that were heavily influenced by blues legends Blind Lemon Ade, Blind Potato Salad and the revered British bluesman, Nearsighted Plum Hendryk-Smythe. He has probably played in every blues club in America at one time or another, and is the inventor of the now-popular electric double-barreled tambourine.

Thanks you Alonzo, hope you are doing well. I just noticed in one of your posts to another that you're have had a rough time, and I'm am truly sorry. Thank you for liking the video and please, if you can, pass this on to as many people as you can. We are trying to establish this company literally with no money right now and we truly believe that it's a winner. I received over thirty notifications about the video and that's just here on Numubu so we have some ideas but I'd be grateful if you were to pass this video on to anyone you think would benefit us from them viewing it. Take care and keep winning at poker! :-) Scotty

Well to continue, After a quick trial, I was sentenced to a life term in St. Jerry's Hospital For The Terminally Disreputable, where I remained through to this day. In 1966, a movement called Free Alonzo Buzzard, or FAB, was begun, but folded two minutes into the first meeting because it was a Saturday afternoon and they wanted to go fishing.
My talent for poker as the great Alonzo had served me well. My weekly poker games at the institution have become a tradition, and, although I am still serving his life term, I now own the hospital.

My success apparently had angered jealous neighbours. One night, I awoke to find a burning treble clef on my front lawn. Then, charges of ear pollution were brought against me, and vicious rumours were spread that I was to blame for the fall of the Roman Empire, World War Two and the widow Thompson's gallstones. The war had been over for a while, and my enemies didn't know much about the Roman Empire, but the widow Thompson was well-liked, especially by the men, and when they heard about the gallstones, they threw me into a boxcar on the next passing train. Fortunately, I was asleep at the time and missed the action. I had always had trouble sleeping, and trying several insomnia cures that didn't work, I found that counting aardvarks jumping over a green '38 Ford truck put me into a deep sleep every time. When I awoke, I was in the Toad Suck, Arkansas City Jail, charged with being a public nuisance.

Thank you Alonzo. It was a lot of work but fun. I hope we can get somewhere with that as one demo and more to come. Take care, Scott

For the next few years I worked at a variety of occupations: toxic waste taster, goldfish polisher in a pet store and substitute laboratory animal. In 1951, I was arrested for impersonating a doctor while giving free breast examinations to women in a bar. It was a job playing piano in a marching band that rekindled my interest in music, which led to me recording 'Love Me Strange'. The tape was heard by officials of Oops! Records ("Our records are never released ... they escape!") and the record was on the market the following week. My next four records sold over 200 copies each ... enough to be called a hit in Paul's Switch, Arkansas, and firmly established me the great Alonzo as a legend in my own mind.

I was either born or hatched (there is some disagreement) near Paul's Switch, Arkansas, in 1929. My parents, Ole and Irma Buzzard, were mussel-shuckers at Black's Button Factory on the Black River, near Black Rock, Arkansas. I attended Paul's Switch Elementary School but was requested to leave by school officials in my fifth year in the second grade after I won their paychecks at a noon poker game in the teachers' lounge. Expulsion from school was a blow to my self-esteem, and I began to drink. First, it was cola, being too young to buy alcoholic drinks, then ginger ale, and finally, root beer. Soon, it controlled my life. For years I binged at least three times a week, occasionally waking up in strange places with strange people or animals. Eventually, with the help of the Root Beer Recovery Institute, I kicked the habit, and haven't had anything to drink since but a couple of fifths of Jack Daniels a week.

Really enjoying your posts, Alonzo. Encore!

Thanx "friend" Way cool...I like you already cause the beard is "way cool!!!" :-) Peace and thanks for looking in on my site. I'll check out a video as soon as I can. Downloading right now so it's not a good time but I always do what I say. Can't help it, had an Oakland cop for a dad who was a scary dude and worked arresting Black Panthers, etc. Made me honest, "or else!" :-)

Alonzo Buzzard, to Numubu. You will, of course, remember my big hit of 1953, ‘Love Me Strange’. I was awarded a plywood record (by my uncle, who felt I needed encouragement) for selling 500 copies. His two friends each bought a copy and my mother bought the other four-hundred ninety-eight. The record is extremely rare and would probably command nearly a pound a copy if she would part with them.

Lol. Congrats on the award. Who knows, maybe it'll go double-platinum.
