OK, I have checked him out, and must admit he's very talented, though I'd prefer that he didn't look like Pee Wee Herman . .


he's pee wee and hank's love child.

his stage patter is so funny too. he was jitterbugging with is retro girlfriend last week before his set. and he's refreshingly self deprecating;

i'm wet nd i'm wild,
honey, i'm short and thin
so i can squeeze out of any position
you try and put me in.

and who else is out there writes protest songs about brick thieves? nobody.

pat! next time you see him wouldn't you tell him that i want a 78? someone compared him to johnny cash recently and i hissed. NOOOOOOOOOOO! hank williams. almost, and don't tell hank i said this, better!!! no, i didn't say that but he is so good. real (as in an elvis REEEEAL) good. i would love to see him jitter bug with the one he loves. it's funny and telling that his woman can jitter bug. of course!

edit. also, why in the fuck is this not in the other bands thread. like third man OWN music now???!
