I been playin’ the guitar for forty-seven years.
My Mama. She played the guitar and sang.
A Gibson Melody Maker.
Tough question, but, off the top of my head, I’d have to say
1. I Ain’t Afraid Of Your Husband
2. Love On Command
3. I Make Faces When I Make Love
4. Foggy Windows
5. Pregnant Again
The first concert I gave the day after I was released from the Illinois State Pen.
One of their reps seen me play in Austin, Texas, and he told me about their guitars. I was glad he did.
I have two Reverend Club King 290 guitars. They are both black. One has a rosewood fretboard and the other has a maple fretboard. (You can also check out the Unknown Hinson Signature model and the brand-new Stu D. Baker model, too!)
They look, play and sound gooder than hell!
I use a VOX AC30 amp with a VOX 2X12″ extension speaker cabinet. I also use a VOX Tonelab SE pedal board controller.
I like to carve puppets and ventriloquist dummies out of wood. I also like to collect old toy robots from the 1950s and ’60s. And I like to collect and restore vintage, American-made Schwinn bicycles. But most of all, I like to drink and chase womerns.
Yes. Practice your guitar, at least a half hour a day, and try to avoid a prison sentence if humanely possible, ’cause your career as a guitar player WILL suffer if you go into the joint for thirty years like I done.
I tour a good bit, and I’m always workin’ on new record albums. I’m also doin’ the voice of a cartoon character named “Early Cuyler” on a show called “Squidbillies” on the Cartoon Network. If folks wanna know more about my life and music they can visit my website: www.unknownhinson.com
