Hank III mentions Madison; why?

Postby markkay » Fri Sep 24, 2010 11:14 am

Seeing that Hank III will be in town soon, I thought I'd check out some youtube footage of him. (I've never seen him and don't know much about him.) In the link below, he peforms It Must Have Been Those Pills I Took in 2007 in Tulsa, Oklahoma and dedicates it those poor bastards in Madison, Wisconsin.

Anybody know what's up with that? Just curious.

Here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-qdQ2AI2H0

Just a guess, but I bet he's referring to the band (see quote on their myspace):

Those Poor Bastards the band, not the rest of us poor bastards in town.

I've seen Lonesome Wyatt and the Minister a few times over the years, and I would probably have caught them at the Frequency last Sunday had I not gone to the Gaslight Anthem show instead.

I saw him last time he was in town and it was a kick ass show. I highly recommend.

A little off the topic but Madison's Susan Masino has just finished a biography on the Williams' that is at the publisher and will be released soon.

Hank III loves Madison, and covered the song by the Madison band, Those Poor Bastards. He's a big fan and mentions them in my new book, Family Tradition-Three Generations of Hank Williams, www.amazon.com, which is due for release on May 1, 2011. Feel free to pre-order a copy right now! :)
