Play

In this episode we’re having a look back on what year 2011 brought, the artists that we discovered and re-discovered at HONKY TONK LIVE : Hank Williams alive again, George Thorogood going back to Chicago, John Mellencamp recording in mono with T-Bone Burnett placing the mike, the Earle family business, Bob Wayne leaving his job as a Hank III roadie to perform by himself. Also through the voices of Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Charlie Feathers and Gene Vincent, we are listening to the old story of Frankie & Johnny, an archetypical bad-ending love story with gunshots, a true story from the 19th century sung by country, blues and rockabilly artists.
