Unknown Hinson on Jimmy Kimmel (+ other stuff)

Unknown Hinson The King of Country and Western Troubadours, part time voice actor for Cartoon Network’s Squidbillies, and full-time bad ass guitar player Unknown Hinson is going to be on Jimmy Kimmel Live tomorrow night! (Tue 4-21-09)

Unknown Hinson (or at least his other persona, Danny Baker) was in the news recently, swept up in the whole brew-ha that involved Billy Bob Thorton getting crosswise with a Canadian interviewer, and eventually canceling the rest of his Canadian tour with Willie Nelson. Danny Baker has been playing bass for Billy Bob’s Band “The Boxmasters.” Check him out at 9:10 in the following video, he looks pretty miffed to me:

It’s a little unclear exactly what role Danny Baker has in The Boxmasters. He is not listed as a member of the band on the their MySpace site, though he does appear in some of the pictures. My guess is that Baker’s role is more of a fill in thing, esp. for live shows. Billy Bob Thorton and Danny Baker are known to be good friends.

Also happening on Tueday:
