Well Folks, it went like this. DAMNED good music, Damned good people (even a few of our "finest" showed up. HANK 3 is an original. He is a musical genious (in my opinion); He is an ICON as well.

Though the music and spirit is completely his own, anyone with a working knowledge of his ancestor, Hank Sr., can immediately pick up on the influence and REBEL SPIRIT, not to mention the unquestionable genetic connections between the 2 men.

I was raised by Old School Country fans, so I have that "working knowledge" of Hank Sr.'s creations and also grew up knowing his image and appearance. I always thought Hank Sr. was the coolest of the cool in the genre.

So you can imagine, that the first time I ever saw HANK 3, through a view finder whilst exiting his tour bus, brought on a reaction that nearly made me drop my camera at the same time my jaw hit the ground.

The similarities in appearance were staggering to me. Then, as this past Wednesday (7-15-09), I got to experience the spirit behind the music and it was overwhelming. This show we just had in Knoxville was no disappointment on any level.

The energy was unbridaled, the crowd was WILD, and the MUSIC was AWESOME. Despite having reason to "cut thru the mustard" and keep it "reasonable", HANK 3 blew the crowd back and kept them pinned to the wall for nearly 4 hours.

I have RARELY seen musicians in any genre GIVE as much as this man and his band.

Hardcore Country in the first set, done in the truest form and then DEATH METAL in the ASSJACK set that would screw your eye balls outta your F%#kin' HEAD !!!!

I truly mean this when I say, If you have ANY F%#KIN' SENSE you will put this act on the TOP OF YOUR LIST as a MUST SEE.

We would like to thank HANK # and BIGSY for all their kindness to us at TWISTED HILLBILLY MAGAZINE and we can't wait to see you again. Hell, iI feel a European road trip comin' on !!!!!!!
