Kenny Rogers Remembered by Mickey Gilley

Rogers was a dear friend of mine. I worked with him back in 1959 in a
recording studio in Houston, Texas. He was working with a jazz group
known as the Bobby Doyle Trio at the time. A lot of folks didn’t know
this, but Kenny played the upright bass on my first song that charted in
Houston. I have lost a great friend and the music world has lost what I
refer to as a superstar. He became a legend in country music, pop music
and movies, as well. Truly a great talent overall. He will definitely
be missed by me and all of his fans.” – Mickey Gilley
