Kinky Friedman

First obtaining prominence in the late 60’s with his band The Texas Jewboys with songs like “They Aint Makin’ Jews Like Jesus Any More”, “Sold American” and “Ride ’em Jewboy” which are now entrenched as cult classics. He’s toured with Dylan and written books with Willie Nelson and Billy Bob Thornton plus close to 30 titles on his own counting Bill Clinton and George Bush amongst his fans. Then there’s his run for governor of Texas (“He Aint Kinky, He’s My Governor!” and “Why The Hell Not?” being two of his campaign slogans) bearing testament to his boundless and close to maniacal energy.
