GUEST,Gern A petition to reinstate Hank Williams (56* d) RE: A petition to reinstate Hank Williams 02 Mar 03


Banjer, I'm with you on Junior. "Family Tradition" was exploitive and celebrates substance abuse at its sickest. Junior is a flat-singing buffoon stuck on himself and reliant on family name-dropping to pay his bills. As to Senior, it seems important to me that he was removed from the Opry temporarily, in order that he might get help and then return. Fate had other plans, of course. The Opry is no more qualified to sit in moral judgement than the Baseball Hall of Fame (or me, for that matter), but it seems to me that a man in constant, chronic back pain who becomes addicted to pain killers and the resultant lowered alcohol tolerance is on a different level than another who gets snotted regularly for the sake of self-indulgence. Besides, the Opry could use the publicity of reinstating its finest voice to counteract their continued assault on authentic country music.
