There's another fella responsible for some things around here in my life. I'm about to introduce you to him. I went on the road when I was 12 years old to get out there. I wanted to play music. Just get out there amongst everybody that played music. I met a man named Roland White in Lester Flatt's band. He was kind to me. He gave me one of his picks. He showed me some mandolin chords and he also gave me one of his scarves. And he gave me his phone number which I kept. He said, 'Call me sometime when you come around town and maybe you can go out on the road.with me and Lester Flatt.' So I made that call. Went out for a weekend. Labor Day weekend 1972. Lester heard us playin' in the back of the bus. He gave me a job. Roland White let me live with him and his family. And he is my brother. How 'bout a hand for Mr. Roland White, one of the greats of bluegrass music. Hello brother Roland." Roland said, "How are ya." Marty said, "Give me a hug." Roland said, "Good to see ya, man." Marty said, "You too. You brought brother Alan O'Bryant with ya." Roland said, "Alan O'Bryant, yeah." Marty said, "It all started about one block away from here, didn't it. On Maplewood." Roland said, "Yeah. Just a half a block up on Maplewood Lane." Marty said, "All right. Let's do one of our biggies." Roland said, "Okay." Marty continued, "From the Nashville Grass days. Banyon, you got it." Alan said, "All right." They performed "You Won't Be Satisfied That Way."
