I think it was Dean "Stretch" McGilhacuddy.The lanky 7 footer played lead in Buonapart Dupree's "Oklahomans" back in the dust bowl. He played an early model Evanston Ambassador with a custom hard rubber mouthpiece of his own design. He had the beek elongated to accomodate his huge mandibular over bite. Of course he used a modified bari. reed. They recorded a couple of sides for Lint records. I think the hit was "Poor ol' Mule". Check Amazon for the reissue.
