Hank III may be satan's favorite grandson.
His daddy was a cactus, his momma was a bear trap, and he was born with his boots on in
a river full of moonshine.
At age 11, he ripped out his own throat and cooked it over a forest fire. The next year, he stole his yodel from a cyclone.
He killed thirteen men before he turned 13, and saved the lives of twenty more.
By age 16, Hank had built a motorcycle out of scrap metal and rebar, hit more punk shows than a Black Flag roadie, and ran through more tail than street mutt at a dog show.
The dude is a true American outlaw. He's been to more county jails than there are county cells. He can string a guitar with razor wire. He crack beers with a high note. He beats up on his setlist like an Alabama street fight. And he's got a songbook thicker than the Yellow Pages.
