Recollections of singer Marty Robbins, as told by his sister Mamie
“Some memories just won’t die,” country music legend Marty Robbins sang in one of his final recordings before his death from heart failure on December 8th, 1982.
In these recollections, Marty’s twin sister Mamie tells about their childhood in and around Phoenix, Arizona.
Descended from Texas and Arizona cowboys and Utah Mormons on their mother's side and Polish stock from Michigan on their father's, Marty and Mamie spent their early years in poverty. What they lacked in material wealth though, they found in the riches of their desert playground.
Sadly, Mamie passed away before this account saw print, but the adventures she shared with her brother live on in these vivid and heartfelt descriptions.

Andrew Means grew up in Britain, and now lives in Arizona in the American Southwest.
As a journalist, he has written about music for numerous publications. He has also written books about the country singer Marty Robbins and rock group Pink Floyd.
His memoir about the Arizona childhood of Marty Robbins, “Some Memories – Growing Up With Marty Robbins”, was based on interviews with Marty's twin sister, the late Mamie Robinson-Minotto. The idea for the title comes from one of the last songs Marty recorded before his death in 1982, “Some Memories Just Won’t Die.”
