I finished up the show “Tales From The Tour Bus”, by Mike Judge. It was mostly animated, and a unique behind the scenes stories from various country acts, Half of the show was spent on the combination of George Jones/Tammy Wynette and Waylon Jennings.
Judge, narrates it, and in his given tone, you can hear a bit of “Hank Hill, Beavis and Butthead” coming out from time to time which makes it neat on it’s own. Other times he sound a lot like “Gilfoyle” from “Silicon Valley” who is played by Martin Starr
- Shooter Jennings tells a tale of George Jones being over at Waylon’s house, and things start to get rowdy and Waylon ties Jones to a tree. Hearing noise, out side, Waylon opens the door and Jones screams “I’m the greatest country sing of all time”. Waylon snaps back “and you are tied to a tree”.I can damn near visualize it.
- Billy Joe Chaver starts a tale, by saying, “We was in Old Blue(a van for the band with a bed and couch in it), coming up to Canada, going through the border, pulling a stolen U-Haul that we had rented months and months before. Had to be a hell of a road trip.
- A tale about how Jennings would fly through a concert without a playlist and he’d start a song and the band had to know what was going on within 4 notes, but yet he would take the time to have a pre-show meeting so everyone could discuss what drugs and what amounts they would be taking so everyone could sync up. A different time.
If you like country music, it’s a must see. If you like music in general, you’ll likely find bits and pieces of it interesting.
