Hank III should have been Hank...no doubt!
Yeah, I was young enough that it moved me.
George Hamilton, and Susan Oliver as an unlikely pair playing Hank and Miss Audrey in 1964. I saw that movie when it first came out at the Wasco theater, and took an entirely different look at C&W music after that. I'd like to have that Martin, it's undoubtedly a Brazilian Rosewood model in that time period. It is said that George could actually sing and play all of Hank's songs, but Miss Audrey had in mind that Hank Jr. would do the sound track, and that's what happened. Miss Audrey usually got her way.
It musta really been bad, I think the only way you can watch it is on YouTube! I was just old enough to finally legally go in a bar when I saw the movie. I thought at the time it was pretty good, but there might have been alcohol and cigars involved. I had been able to get into most bars since I was seventeen, so it wasn't like a monumental emergence into manhood!
Yeah, i guess Johnboy played Hank Jr.
Here's Steve Vai as Hank
I saw that trailer a long time ago, and forgot about it. I'm going to hunt it up and watch the movie. Thanks.
I think he's still alive, living back in Philly.
I don't know if it is possible to turn back the clock, leave your cellphone behind and have it be like it was back in 1964. I love all the trinkets life has to offer to make it interesting, I'm not really into the fuddy duddy, I don't like new crowd thing, but I occasionally miss being really alone. When I was a young man out on the highway in a diesel truck, the only time my boss could tell me anything was when he had me on the phone when I called in. Once in a while I just wouldn't call in, he would really get tight about it, but it didn't seem to bother me, besides I couldn't haul but one load at a time anyway.
This here is the proof that Don Helms said that it didn’t take too many drinks for ol Hank to get blind drunk.
Tonight I watched The Last Ride
I will not watch it again
I read I Saw the Light several years ago. Good book. Sad story.
Hank III guested on Marty Stuart once, wearing a suit of his grandfather's. Spit and image, voice too.
P.S. After my first 30 years playing guitar I probably knew fewer than 20 songs. Half of those were Hank Williams songs. I still sing them often, most of them. He was King of the Three-Chorders.
IIRC he sang A Picture From Life’s Other Side
His whole "stardom thing" lasted something like only two years. That star flamed out way too early.
His second wife, Billie Jean, married Johnny Horton (Battle of New Orleans, North to Alaska) after Hank died. She lived outside of Shreveport, where I worked at the V.A. Hospital and she'd come by once a year and visit the vets and write a check for donation to a veterans assistance fund. She always signed them Mrs. Johnny Horton.
He could have stuck around, outlived his fame, and been a fat man on stage in Las Vegas wiping his armpits with cheap handkerchiefs and tossing them to middle aged women.
He did a very good job on it too. Ain't no question that boy is Hank's grandkid.
Yeah, but that’s also common as dirt among alcoholics. They can pound beer all day and you don’t even notice them.
Two days later they have a double and they’re under the table (or on it ).
