  • Dan Hicks RIP

    Another sad loss. http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/...s-age-36762023

    I was hooked after hearing sublime tracks like 'Canned music' and 'I scare myself'.
    "THIS IS A FINE TAPE AND BRINGS BACK MEMORIES OF YESTERYEAR WHEN THE MUSIC WORLD WAS GOOD AND NOT FOULED UP BY THE LONG HAIR SCURVES WHO JUST BEAT WILDLY ON ANYTHING AND COME UP WITH A LOT OF STUPID NOISE THat only damnfools and liars say they like it"

    Sorry to be so long in replying to this ET - you're right though - a very sad loss. First heard him in the 70s when my bro brought home a copy of 'Strikin' It Rich', which along with a few other things we listened too back then (Asleep At The Wheel, Chilli Willi, etc.) gave me a taste for western swing. Hicks was cool and funny enough to keep that music alive through those times. Later I learned he was one of the original Charlatans of 'Codeine' fame. I was hoping maybe to check out a show at some point when I learned he was back on the road, but of course that won't happen now....

    This was a favourite...
