I saw this over at Big Hollywood. At BH Lisa Mei Norton has an interview with James Hooker and presents videos of a couple of his great pro military songs. Hooker was one of the original founding members of one of my all time favorite groups--the Amazing Rhythm Aces. He began writing his album of pro military, patriotic songs after 9/11 and says he wrote "Hanging Out with the Boys" (which is the title track of the album) "for all the vets."
If poetry is getting the biggest bang with the fewest words, then this is poetry. I will view this video EVERY Memorial Day...until I pass.ReplyDelete
George, I agree. This song is poetry. The visuals are excellent also.ReplyDelete
Poetry, indeed. The best times of my life were spent hangin' out with the boys, too... even though no one ever fired a shot at me. Luck o' the draw, and all that.ReplyDelete
Thanks for this, Dan. I wish I woulda come back by yesterday to listen/watch this.
