Happy birthday to the late great Townes van Zandt, one of the greatest songwriters of the 20th century, certainly my own favorite. Here is playing fiddle with his best friends Guy and Susanna Clark, along with Daniel Antopolsky.
Just over a week ago, somebody from Nashville who may or may not play a guitar but who we’re supposed to think is important said, “If you’re not on country radio, you don’t exist.”
I say “somebody” because he doesn’t have a name. As far as I’m concerned, he doesn’t exist.
I’d say enjoy these great clips, except apparently when you hit play, you won’t hear a thing, because they don’t exist. If you hear something wonderful, you must be on drugs instead.
