Lubbock Most Influential #69:
Don Caldwell, Tommy Hancock, C.B. Stubblefield. These three men, though widely varied in background and profession, are given collective credit for the survival of music's "West Texas sound."
Don Caldwell, a musician specializing on saxophone, more frequently is recognized for his development of local talent and providing a venue in which they could perform. He's the general manger of the Cactus Theater in the Depot District.
Tommy Hancock is often acknowledged as the Godfather of West Texas music. He put together a popular swing band, The Roadside Playboys, and eked out a living in the rough and tumble honky tonk culture of West Texas.
C.B. Stubblefield opened Stubb's Bar-B-Q in Lubbock in 1968. His special blend of barbecue, music, and charisma attracted local and major musicians to his rickety barbecue shack on East Broadway. Many blues and country stars performed at Stubb's.
