Here is the famous 1976 album cover with Clarence
& Roscoe Jones. The Daredevils by law
could only show 3/4 of the picture, as the rights were owned by A
& M Records.
The picture was taken in June 1976. Clarence Jones died several
years ago, however his son
Roscoe is still alive and lives in a retirement home in Ozark Missouri.
Roscoe is the one on the right.
Jones passed away on Friday, November 14, 2003 in Ozark, MO. He died
from an apparent
heart failure at the age of 79. He will be missed by many people, friends, and
"fans". We are fortunate to
have talked to him and to have
taken the photos below. See more on the story of his life.
Here are two pictures taken of Roscoe Jones in
Ozark, Missouri on July 14th, 2001. The one on the left
was taken by Beverly Thomason. The one on the right was taken by
Roscoe was so excited that Pat recognized him and wanted to take his picture
that he took his coat off and
threw it down on the ground....and smiled! He told Pat that he came
to the fair to see the horses.
The album pictures above and these are 25 years apart!
He is able to leave the retirement home by himself and walk around in
(We were at the Christian County Fair in Ozark, Missouri, at Bill &
Peg McClerran's Talent Contest)
