‘I started my first band in 1955, and between then, and l963, I had put together three local successful bands, and had moved to Macon. In 1963, I hired a four-piece rhythm section. I called them the “C.C. Riders”, which stood for “Cochran’s Circuit Riders”. I bought an Old Flexible Flyer tour bus. It was the same color as James Brown’s bus….. so cool! A battery for that bus cost $365.00. We had to push it to get it started, but once it got started, it would run fine. We did one month at the Jolly Roger in Nashville, Tennessee, on Printer’s Alley. It was there I learned my first James Brown song, “Out of Sight”.
