If you ask John David Souther where he is from, he may say without hestination; "I'm From Amarillo." But depending on who is asking, he may shrug and say: "I'm from everywhere, I guess." He would be mostly right either way. Born in Detroit, Michigan, and raised in Texas, Souther came into his own upon moving to Los Angeles and becoming part of the burgeoning singer-songwriter scene surrounding the Troubadour bar. It was here that he met the artists who would figure so prominently in his career: Glenn Frey, Linda Ronstadt, Jackson Browne, Ry Cooder, and many others.
