Willie covers Tom T. Hall, enough said.
I was at this show at the portion of this that was taped at the Cain’s Ballroom and I have to tell you, Wilco rocked my face off! This DVD is due out out on April 18th, but where do I sign up to pre-order?
Clear Lake Iowa, Lubbock Texas and Sydney Australia, of all places, are all staging celebrations this week for one of rock ‘n roll’s great performers that sadly, was taken from us way too soon. Actually there were four people killed on that plane in the early morning hours of February 3rd, 1959; Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, J.P. “Big Bopper” Richardson, and the pilot, Roger Peterson, but Buddy Holly is the one who had the biggest impact on rock ‘n roll music. There have been movies, musicals, music videos by contemporary artists and many other various tributes to Holly over the years and rightly so. See, he started out playing country covers and bluegrass tunes, but it wasn’t until he saw Elvis Presley that he turned to rock n roll and only a few short months later he was sharing a stage with the king. That my friends is a quick rise to stardom and no doubt one of the many reasons he is still relevant today.
This my friends is some real country music, not the nash-vegas bullshit new country that is so prevalent these days. This ain’t your momma’s Rascal Flats son, I hope you can handle it. See you won’t hear Hank3 on terrestrial radio, hell for that matter you rarely hear his grandad, anymore and that’s just a damn shame.
While your at it, why don’t you go sign the petition, lets all work together and get Hank reinstated to the Grand Ole Opry.
