Pat Daugherty

“I was sitting on a mountain top. 30,000 feet to drop. Spied a lady on a runaway horse, Uh huh, that's right, of course. Jim Dandy to the rescue!”


James Mangrum was/is larger than life, and his band, known as Black Oak Arkansas, were a mighty ensemble (which included drummer Tommy Aldridge at one point) that unmercifully mashed boogie, blues, and hard rock.

Bassist Pat “Dirty” Daugherty anchored the band’s classic line-up, often switching gears from in-the-pocket plonkery to raucous riffage within same song.
