My name is L. J. Henry. They call me “Geronimo.”
My grandfather knew the great Apache medicine man. They held him as a prisoner of war for a full quarter of his life you know.
In 1899 he was held at the “Jefferson barracks” near Mobile,that''s where Grandpa Henry met him, and that’s where I got the name…”Geronimo”
I have been playin’ and singin’ country music for 50 years. Over those years I have, however informally rubbed elbows with a myriad of the great, near great and ingrate, of the music and entertainment world.
I ran the best Guitar store in the world! Matt Umanov Guitars, down in the Greenwich Village.
It was there that I got the opportunity to meet the big shots.
From Sinatra to Johnny Cash to Paul Butterfield to…Jaco, jaco was a pal of mine, I could have saved him if I had been there, I know I could.
I served in Vietnam in the 60’s, I missed the entire era because of the war, lost a pal or two there.
My last job in the Navy was “Armed Forces Police” in Brooklyn . I arrested kids who joined the service, and then just decided they did not like it and just went home, the Navy frowns on that.

I come from Alabama, what does that look like on my knee ? Yes it is a Banjo!!
I once had a great band “L. https://www.tradebit.comry and the Pistilleros” I did them dirt, and they don’t speak to me for years now,oh well, ‘Es la vida” Good men all and I wish I could make it up to them some day, maybe in the next life.I would apologize, but I take John Wayne’s advice and ”Never,apologize it’s a sign of weakness,”and Winston Churchill’s “Never give up, never give up, never ,never, never give up.”
I have been in Texas now for 20 years by way of a year in a Mexican jail we had a great joint on the “Isla Mujeres” off the coast of Cancun. “Bad Bones Café” Ran a few loads of guns to the Zapatista rebels, that’s where I meet my wife, she was one of them.

I forgot, I must have been… Johnny cash said “Mamma songs are always good in country music"
In short, these are my “SONGS OF GLORIFIED DISPAIR” And yes I know despair is misspelled, and that’s country too.
