Aces &Eights

Eddy Lee, Mark Webernick, Rick Fowler, Steve Howard

“Aces &Eights”- Rick Fowler (Three Faces West) having picked the name; left to right in the photo above.  Eddy Lee on bass and guitar, Mark Webernick, key board, Rick Fowler on bass and guitar (he and Eddy Lee would trade off) and Steve Howard on rhythm.

Over the years the Bullington family vacationing in Red River stumbled onto this mountain town heading to a cousins wedding in Denver. During their yearly visits they would go to the Outpost where the Three Faces West performed. After 10 years, they moved to Red River.  Eddy Lee was to later tell his parents that he decided then that he would be a musician.  Eddy Lee was around 7 yrs. old at that time.  The Three Faces West members were Rick Fowler, Wayne Kidd, Ray Wiley Hubbard and later Steve Howard.  As an adult Eddy Lee was to later play with Rick Fowler, Wayne Kidd and Steve Howard.

You would always know how long someone had known Eddy Lee whether they called him Lee or Eddy Lee. Eddy Lee was his professional name. Rick Flower said that Eddy Lee liked that he called him Lee as a long time friend.
