WS Holland


The last phone call we had together he said
“thank you for being my friend”
(Hear him sayin
Thank yoooo For bein ma friend)
with tears in my eyes and sadness in my heart
WS, thank you for being my friend
I love you xo.
We mourn the loss of our dear friend WS “Fluke” Holland who passed away at his home in Jackson, Tennessee, today. Fluke was present during the infamous jam session at Sun Studio’s on 12/4/1956 that inspired our stage play, and a legendary drummer for both Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash. He can be heard on Carl’s “Blue Suede Shoes,” Carl Mann’s “Mona Lisa,” to name a few, and on most all of Cash’s recordings from 1960 onward. We had the honor of Fluke joining us at various performances of Million Dollar Quartet throughout the years and we’ll miss him greatly. Fluke was 85.

😢🥁 RIP….W.S. Holland (Johnny Cash’s Drummer who was part of the Tennessee Three for over 35 years)…this photo was taken when he played drums for a show I did in Jackson, TN back in 2007…
