Sadly we have lost another Texas music icon, legendary bassist Randy Cates. In his successful career of over 60 years, Randy was inducted into the Minnesota Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame, from his time with RCA Recording Artist “Gypsy”. Randy was in the Texas Tornado class of 1990, and a member of The Stratoblasters for over 30 years. There will be a memorial benefit for Randy on October 30, location TBD. Speaking about Randy, The Stratoblasters Jimmy Wallace stated that he was “a true gentleman.”
