Dan described his music this way:
When my friend Mark tapped me on Facebook to let me know Dan had died (we first heard them when we were in high school), he mentioned the song “I Scare Myself,” from Dan’s 1972 album Striking It Rich with his Hot Licks (Sid Page, violin; John L. Girton, guitar; Jaime Leopold, bass; Maryann Price and Naomi Ruth Eisenberg, vocals). This video is from their 1989 appearance on PBS’s Austin City Limits (the guitarists in the back are members of another Dan Hicks group, the Acoustic Warriors).
Farewell, Dan, and say hello to Duke, Benny, Django, and Stephane from me.
One-Liner Wednesday (all right, I overshot it by a few) is sponsored by Linda Hill at her blog. The graphic above is my rather pathetic attempt at designing a badge for it…
