The world is a slightly better place: one less Texan.  Country “musician” Ray Price, died at the spry age of 87.

In the 50’s he revolutionized Country music by sliding a beer bottle along his guitar… or letting his three-legged hound dog howl on his record… or something.

In 1953, Price founded The Cherokee Boys, a band that got bullied until they were saved by a righteous Billy Jack ass-kickin’.  The Cherokee nation was happy to let him use their name and belittle their race because,

No, that's not a ventriloquist's dummy, that's Ray Price!

No, that’s not a ventriloquist’s dummy, that’s Ray Price!

you know, it was all in good fun.

He was on The Grand Ole Opry… or is it in the Grand Ole Opry?  Featured in or on the Gand Ole Opry?  Part of the Grand Ole Opry?  What exactly the hell is the Grand Ole Opry?  Isn’t it just a barn with a bunch of hay-seeds trying out for a spot on Hee-Haw?

Price had a string of hits that all sucked because of their unfortunate genre.  I think I’d rather listen to Bette Midler sing The Stones.

Anyway, he died… let’s say with his boots on.  So that JOANNE could get a hit!

Joann has done the impossible!  She has tied me for the lead at 30 points.  But don’t let it go to your head, Joanne.  Tomorrow I’ll get an epic hit that will leave you in the dust, crying like a little girl with a skinned knee.

Happy Pooling,
SPMI
