That's right, Kinky Friedman of "The Lost Texas Jewboys" fame was born on or around today in 1944.
Kinky came to prominence in the early-mid 1970's with his rendition of a song that was a response to the heavy-handed Merle Haggard song "Okie from Muskogee". Kinky's call back was "I'm Proud to Be an Asshole from El Paso".
Here's a snippet:
Kinky had lots of great songs, "Amelia Earhart's Last Flight", "Rapid City, South Dakota", "Sold American", "Autograph", "Git Your Biscuits in the Oven and Your Buns in the Bed" and here's a couple more:
"Ol' Ben Lucas":
"They Ain't Makin' Jews Like Jesus Anymore":
Over the years Kinky has spread his influence, branching out as an author. Here are just a few of his books. All are highly recommended.
