Steve and Hank

After a morning of dealing with foreign publishers, legal matters, and the morning’s email (sigh), I finally got around to working on the revision of the Driftwood Shacks book.The fun part of publishing.

I turned on Sirius radio to Outlaw Country, and heard Steve Earle doing Hank’s “I’ll Never Get Out of This World Alive.” True to the master. Listen to the steel guitar and the fiddles — channelling. And do I hear a tuba?

Great vintage photos. Way to go, Steve! Video closes with this quote by Hank: “If a song can’t be written in 20 minutes, it ain’t worth writing.”

Then DJ Mojo Nixon followed up with Hank doing : “Hey, Good Lookin'”, saying :

“Life would surely stank,
If there hadn’t been no Hank.”



True that.
