Reinstate Hank Videos !!!
First of there’s a really cool Reinstate Hank video that came from the event in Cincinnati Judd Films wrote about in this blog.
I was tipped off about this from Reinstate Hank lieutenant Restless in Amsterdam. Check it out:
Man, can you imagine renting a room and being told the piano that comes with it is the one Hank Williams practiced on before recording “Lovesick Blues”? Shitfire.
Also Outlaw Magazine is asking anyone and everyone to submit videos voicing their opinion about Hank Williams not being a member of the Opry that will be uploaded to their website. To read more about it CLICK HERE, and thanks again to Cathy for spearheading the Reinstate Hank affairs through Outlaw Magazine.
— Tim Pop Live has some new shows up, including another all country show, so you should go check that out.
–Hank III released a few new concert dates in Cali, including 2/27 at the Roxy in LA, and the Grand Ballroom in San Francisco on 2/28. Of course you can always check out the tour section of hank3.com for all tour dates.
Also a quick correction. In my Shooter VS. Shelton blog, I accidentally wrote that Shooter’s “Put the ‘O’ Back in Country” song was a duet with Neil Young. I had duet on the brain I guess because I was talking earlier in the blog about how there was no chance we’d see a duet between Shooter and III. I think what I meant to say at the time was that Neil Young co-wrote the song. But that is false too. “Put the O” was adapted from Neil Young’s “Are you Ready for the Country,” a song Neil wrote on Harvest in 1972 and covered by Waylon in 1976 on an album of that same name. I have to thank Don for pointing that out, and hopefully I can keep my brain farts to a minimum in the future.
I also dug up some very very interesting information involving the whole ‘cunt’ and ‘O’ in country controversy that is so involved I have even finished the research yet, but I will get it into a blog soon so stay tuned.

Thanks for posting the link to Bob Wayne merchandise! I need to get the first cd and was at a loss! Also, rumor going around III is playing in Seattle on either March 3 or 4 at the Showbox (listed on their site) but nothing on hank3.com or the myspace page. Any info?

As for III in Seattle, the timeline would make sense, but I’ve been burned so many times with rumor and whatever on III tour dates, I only believe them when they are published officially.
That is a great guest to have for Episode 23. Plug away shamelessly all you want, Bob and IBWIP deserve all the pub they can get!
