Containing Multitudes Since 2004
Surely Bob Wills was the King of Western Swing.
It's an arguable point . . . and I'd probably agree with you . . . but Cooley billed himself as King of Western Swing (not too different from Paul Whiteman's being called King of Jazz); thus do I attach it to the caption.It's not mean to imply an endorsement of the billing.
I had always loved his song "Crazy Cause I Love You." Then I read about his murderous rampage. The song became eerily creepy -- as if it was a warning.I still like the song, though!
Inquisitor of Western Swing, maybe.
Sir Stomp a Lot of Western Swing.
You've got to love a guy whose first AND last names are racial slurs!
