Jim “Pocket Bullets” Paris
Someone recently asked if I ever played poker while touring the world in my past Rock & Roll history, so I decided to re-post the following. Check it out!
…In the past I have written about rock and roll and alluded to my personal rock ‘n roll past. I wrote about contributing to the Buddy Miles biography in a press release that you can read here, and I have written about how, when we were touring, we often played poker to kill time while cruising in our “Stretched out Silver Eagle” going from one gig to the next. I’ve even written a few poker lyrics that ended up in a collaboration between my wife, myself and the incredibly talented Randy Pavlock. That collaboration ended up with the Texas Poker Store producing the music video of “I May Be Bluffin.”
Recently, a friend sent me this pic of Buddy Miles actually trying to read my poker face, and if memory serves me correctly, he was holding a pair of cowboys that were no match for my trip queens. Buddy was always much better at playing drums than playing Poker!…
