GRITZ Comments from Friends & Legends


"Michael Buffalo Smith as a musician, writer, critic, and southern music historian really gets it. His taste and deep appreciation for the real thing are qualities that inspire all of us in his wake. And it's a big wake."

-Billy Bob Thornton

"The thing I like most about GRITZ is the honesty. The reason people read it is because of you, Buffalo. You know the history because you lived it, and you aren't always trying to work some "angle" during interviews. You just relax and have a conversation. I really like that. I am a big fan of GRITZ."

- Dickey Betts

"Michael Buffalo is the torch bearer for all of us. He is vital to our success."

-Bonnie Bramlett

Jimmy Hall, lead singer of Wet Willie, solo artist, Hank, Jr. bandleader, etc, etc

-Pete Carr, Top Muscle Shoals Guitar Session Man

Billy C. Farlow, original lead singer of Commander Cody & His Lost Planet Airmen.


"All of the different aspects of Gritz are great and I like to click on and learn about things I didn't know. I learned some things about Jimmy Hall and Edgar Winter I did not know. It's a great thing for the fans to be able to click in and learn about entertainment and the people who do it."

- Don Barnes; .38 Special

-Chuck Ruff; Original drummer for The Edgar Winter Group

"After filming all day, I soooo look forward to coming home, logging on, and find out what's going on in my other world. The world of Southern Rock. I live in Los Angeles and it just isn't appreciated like it should be here. I go back in the early 70's with Toy Caldwell  and company, I played with the Reds in Greensboro, NC and 3 times a year made the trip to Spartanburg. You might say that is where I was schooled. Still, my days are started with a little "Cattle Drive" or "Midnight Promises." You guys do a bang up job keepin us informed out here. Kudo's to you and thanks much. Long Live Gritz !"

- Brad Lesley, former Cincinatti Reds pitcher turned film actor
