1) The Outlaws are Southern rock band formed in Tampa, FL in 1972 by singers/guitarists Hughie Thomasson and Henry Paul, bassist Frank O’Keefe, and drummer Monte Yoho. With the 1973 addition of guitarist Billy Jones, the lineup was complete, and after a year of intense touring the band became the first act signed to Arista under Clive Davis; the Outlaws’ self-titled 1975 album spotlighted their Eagles-influenced harmonies and Allman Brothers-like guitar attack , yielding the Top 40 hit “There Goes Another Love Song.”

Harvey Dalton Arnold replaced O’Keefe on bass in time for the recording of Bill Szymczyk-produced Hurry Sundown. Henry Paul left shortly after the completion of that album, replaced by Freddie Salem. Old friend David Dix joined as a second drummer. Dix had played in teen bands with Thomasson. Dix was first heard on the live set Bring It Back Alive and the studio effort Playin’ to Win. The lineup shuffles continued when Arnold announced his departure following 1979’s In the Eye of the Storm, with bassist Rick Cua recruited for the next year’s Ghost Riders in the Sky, which netted a Top 40 entry with its title track, a rendition of the Vaughn Monroe favorite. Yoho left to rejoin Henry Paul soon after, and with the subsequent exit of Jones, only Thomasson remained from the original Outlaws roster — not surprisingly, the group disbanded upon completing 1982’s Los Hombres Malo.
