Okay, many of you have heard the stories of my near-miss in the music industry in the early 1990s. The short version is this: A buddy and I decided we wanted to become rock stars, but didn’t have the talent. So, instead we went for a gimmick and blended two kinds of music together…country & rap (otherwise known as “crap”) and, quite surprisingly, we damn near made it. An expensive video, three record contract offers from Nashville and a meeting with Fleetwood Mac’s producer followed and we were on our way. Somewhere along the line, however, the train got derailed and the Boom Cowboys fizzled out..and the Beatles were able to breathe a sigh of relief.
So, for all of you who’ve been asking all these years, here’s your shot to finally see the Boom Cowboys Cut It Up video. And yep, sad to say that’s me with the hot pink shirt and cow guitar…(hey, it was a loooong time ago, what can I say!).
And here’s another shot of the Boom Cowboyz working their magic in the studio. Apparently, pink was a common thread in my life back in the day…
Well, there you have it…if you really, really want to hear the whole story, maybe I’ll tell ya sometime out on the boat. Now, go ahead…the comments section is yours. Do your worst!
