Best Candidate For A Statue

Doug Sahm

When Doug Sahm died last November, he not only took a piece of Austin's heart with him, he carried off a big chunk of Texas Soul. Fortunately, there's plenty of the Great State to go around, like say some of that prime real estate down on Town Lake - over there by Stevie Ray. Plant a row of redwoods, build a waterfront of benches, sculpt some twisting Texas Tornados. Doug Sahm, State Musician of Texas.
