Kinky Friedman and The Texas Jewboys
Saw a great program on Swedish TV last night (as opposed to Danish television, Sweden still has TV-programs uninterrupted by commercials instead of the other way round )
It was about Kinky Friedman - a jewish Country singer from Texas (!)
A very funny man and the author of songs like : "They Ain’t Makin’ Jews LiKe Jesus Anymore", "Proud to be an asshole from El Paso" and a song about a man who finds himself - post-defocatum - in a bathroom without toilet-paper but suddently he discovers a piece of paper with a portrait of Jesus lying on the floor...
In his younger years he hung out with Tom Waits and Iggy Pop and toured and recorded with Willie Nelson. When his Country and Western days were over he became a writer of crime novels and his biggest fans are former president Bill Clinton who also appeared in the program reading from some of Friedman´s books, and current president George W. Bush.
