The Gulf Coast Boys
(1998) Greater Texas
Publishing Company


"In 1998, Dobson published The Gulf Coast Boys, a chronicle of the life and hard times of the Hemmer Ridge Mountain Boys (Townes Van Zandt, Rex Bell and Mickey White, along with their psycho drinking buddy Johnny Guess, who is portrayed in the book as "JJ Wanker"). An existential dharma bum's look at the birth (and afterbirth) of what we now refer to as Texas music, the book received serious critical acclaim."
 - William Michael Smith
