Russell ‘Rusty’ Perkins

“Always in the key of C” - Russell ‘Rusty’ Perkins

Everyone loves a good drummer. They are a strange lot by their own admittance …never really playing music, but keeping the beat for everyone else to follow. If a song were played twenty times, the drummer would play it twenty different ways. It is what makes them so much fun, sitting in the back of the band and making it up every time they play. Welcome to Lt Colonel (Ret.) Russell Perkins.
Russ was born to Mildred and Woodrow Perkins on Dec. 10, 1945, in New Or­leans, the youngest of four children. As they say, he got to Texas as soon as he could and spent his formative years in Mexia before setting his sights on serving the America he loved dearly and seeing the world.
