“Q What do people call you? A Crabmeat or Jerry. My wife never calls me Jerry, she calls me Crabmeat. Q How long have you been playing music and what do you play? A I always sang and whistled and made music, even when I was a little, little, little baby kid. When I got to college it was the big folk scare of the ’60s, and I got a guitar and started singing around the dormitory and everybody liked it and came and sang along. It was very easy in college to learn stuff from other people, we were always getting together and doing that. Q Were you performing the same type of material you do now? A When I was up in Oregon there were a lot of people moving to the country. Then there was this song “Take Me Home, Country Road,” and it really expressed what people where feeling. So when I got down to California, people were playing country music, like Merle Haggard, and then country rock.”
