I believe he meant Waylon Jennings. Never heard of Waylon Tisdale.
Aww come on man...he played basketball in the NBA and was a great bass player with some solid smooth jazz albums. I am sure you heard some of his music in the background of a few of the joints you frequent.

I just tried to google Waylon Tisdale and got no hits. He must have been that good at basketball or as a drummer.
I'm actually pretty set right now. As I mentioned below, I wanted to see Roy Orbison, he was in the Baltimore area 3 times the summer before he dropped dead, that's when I vowed to make sure I get out and see acts. Coincidentally, the first one I checked off was Doc Watson (and saw him a few times after that.) Could have seen Johnny Cash at the Birchmere, the late show and I had to work the next day, kicking myself for that, although at the time I wasn't really into that. Liked to have seen Elvis in the day.
So very deliberately because of age, I've seen George Jones (at the Frederick Co. fairgrounds, perfect!) Isaac Hayes, (out of it, died a year later) and Early this year I saw Dr Ralph Stanley on his 85th b'day so that was a good one for the reason of "see em before they go." I can't think of anyone who fits that category these days. Saw Tony Bennett last year (at Wolftrap) which wasn't all that great so kinda killed just seeing anyone for that reason.
Would loved to have seen Roy Buchanan. Man that would have been awesome. I think he played at 117 South Main back in the mid-seventies.
