Guitarist Mack Brings Varied Life To L.A. Concert

Don Waller, Los Angeles Times, 10 August 1985

"FIRST TIME I met Jeff Beck was when they were doin' that benefit for Ronnie Lane down in Dallas. Ah came in the door and Jeff yells, 'Lonnie Mack!' And then he came over and got on his knees and bowed down to me. He says, 'Man, I wish I could give you somethin' for all those licks I got off you, but all I've got is this.' And then he handed me a bottle of Beck's Beer. Ah said, 'Oh man, Where's a photographer when you need one?'"
