Quote from Talkin Trash with Jerry LaCroix

An Interview with the Former Lead Singer of Edgar Winters White Trash

by Michael Buffalo Smith ...for the full interview 

http://swampland.com/articles/view/title:jerry_lacroix

Got a call from Rare Earths manager who asked me if Id be interested in singing with them and I said, yeah, Ive always loved Rare Earth. So, he flew me out to L.A. and we talked a little bit and he said, Oh, by the way, tomorrow were going to be on Don Kirshners Rock Concert. You want to sing with us? No rehearsal, no nothing. I just got on live TV and sang Get Ready. He said and then, day after tomorrow, were going on tour. So I had to learn all of their songs in two days. I seem to have made a career out of taking peoples places in bands. (laughs)

Benefit in Texas to help soul singer Jerry LaCroix

Posted in News with tags Benefit for Jerry LaCroixBoogie KingsG. G. Shinn,Jerry LaCroixJivin' Gene Bourgeois on August 27, 2010 by 30daysout

A number of the top musicians from Southeast Texas and Southwest Louisiana will band together this weekend in Beaumont, Texas,  to help Jerry LaCroix, the legendary R&B/rock singer.

Jerry LaCroix

LaCroix, former lead singer for the Fabulous Boogie Kings, Edgar Winters White Trash, Rare Earth and Blood, Sweat and Tears, experienced congestive heart failure earlier this year.  The event will raise money for medical bills and expenses LaCroix has accrued from his lengthy hospital stay.

A few years ago, LaCroix moved to the Hemphill area to help care for his ailing mother and began experiencing health problems of his own.  I havent been in the best of health since last year. I was getting weaker and weaker and in a matter of days, I couldnt stand up, LaCroix said in an interview with the Beaumont Enterprise. I fell down twice trying to walk with a walker and the second time, I hit my head pretty hard.

The benefit is Sunday, at the Beaumont Crockett Street entertainment district and it will feature appearances by Wayne Toups, Jivin Gene Bourgeois, G.G. Shinn, Scott McGill, Charles Mann, T.K. Hulin, Ken Marvel, Gerry Mouton, Willie T. and others.

If you cant make it to Beaumont but still want to help out, contact Don Ball at (409) 548-4444.

God's speed to Jerry, a very talented singer and front man.

At 4:26 of this video, is it possible the man standing backstage is Mike Urso?  Sure looks like him...
