King of The Roadies

Ben Dorcy.  Lovey.  King of the Roadies.

If you don’t know who I’m talking about, let me school ya a little!  Ben DorceyBen Dorcy III is the world’s oldest roadie.  Some say he is the world’s FIRST roadie.

Here’s what Willie Nelson has said about his friend, Lovey.  “I’ve learned I have the perfect person to steer me. When I’m contemplating one of life’s difficult decisions, I generally consult with Ben Dorcy. Bless his barely thumping heart, Ben is my canary in the coalmine. When faced with a difficult decision, I observe Ben and do the opposite of what he does.”
– Willie Nelson (with Turk Pipkin), The Tao of Willie, 2007

There is a documentary in production which chronicles his life in show business and the escapades he has been on touring with the likes of Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash and more.

A Kickstarter campaign launches Tuesday, May 19th which also happens to be Ben’s 90th birthday.  You can learn more at

The Kickstarter campaign will run through June 20th and there are lots of cool rewards to be had as well as contributing to history in the making!
