    Who the hell writes this crap and where the hell are they getting their so-called facts??? Gads a lot of this info is dead wrong! Larry Verne was my father. His ‘real’ name was Larry Vern Erickson for starters. If you are reading this, look elsewhere for correct facts! This idiot even has the hit song wrong. Mr. Custer was the hit. Mr. Livingston was the B-side of the 45 RPM single.
