    Doobie Brothers, about 12 miles away when they formed and made their bones.

    Then about 40 miles from me were Santana, The Greatful Dead, Quicksilver Messenger Service, Janis Joplin, Jefferson Airplane, Journey but to name a few.

    The closest to where I live would be Johnny Cash, I live about 30-40 miles from where he grew up.

    But state wide? There's too many to list. You wouldn't believe Arkansas is a hot bed of talent, but it kind of is. Loads of Country and Blues musicians, and actors and writers too.

    I am also North of South. I'll pitch in the O'Jays and Marilyn Manson. The latter attended high school with my wife.
