Hank Williams III is still alive


Side Note:

Hank3 did a song with Devildriver. Devildriver recorded the "Outlaws Album" as a metal/country fusion album. It is shockingly good. Hank sinngs on the song, so does his wife, and Randy from LoG. Blast it. The whole album crushes.

/Slalshy for the Elvis kid, sad

Poor young man; Twenty-seven years old and blows his brains out. Sad.

Rest in peace.

He's in blood, huh, he's all shot up. Mm, mm, mm, mm. Yay, yay, ya.

Read that last word as "velveeta".

I thought you had to be famous to be considered for the "27 Club"
What did he do, other than fall out of his mother's vagina?

I thought it was musician specific, but yeah, same question.

Hoopy Frood: And his mama cried.


I believe that his mama is a Scientologist, so her crying over his choosing to "leave his physical body" is goddamned unlikely.

I feel bad for the kid and what he was going through, but Lisa Marie is completely batshiat crazy AND was either having an extremely bad day or is always a complete and utter doucherocket to other human beings. Not feeling a whole lot of sympathy for her.

Rest well, kiddo. Sorry the world sucked enough that you felt the need to leave in such a manner.

If you're chasing green-lights, this is why it pays to have Total Fark.  There were easily a half-dozen, "Elvis' Nephew has left the building" and "Elvis' Nephew 27 Club" headlines submitted and denied.  They keep coming.  If you have TF, you can scan if a story has been submitted, greened, or if the same joke is being submitted over and over, so you can come up with something original.  This is the best one and it got greened.
 
2020-07-13 12:38:51 AM  
So sad to see him outlived by his famous grandfather.
 
2020-07-13 12:54:44 AM  
His sister was amazing in The Girlfriend Experience. Then the writers on the series decided to torpedo the whole concept/ story in the last episode or two. Riley Keough.

Thank you for not shiatting on someone who had such mental health issues that he killed himself. Unlike the over abundance of POSs present.

I have TF but I never look at the que. I pay the 5 to keep the servers on. I spend entirely too much time here 😁

You can't just join the club without some kind of remarkable talent or it would be full.

Until now, I didn't know Lisa Marie had any kids, let alone four of them.

GIS of her son Ben showed what appeared to be a mostly joyless individual.

I object to the link. I got a message about 'the page isn't here'. Then I looked around and saw a headline that said everyone is getting $750 and I got excited. Then I read the article and realized this was for Australia! It'll take weeks for my $750 to get to California. What a letdown.

The Scieno celebs are taking a hit.  Kelly Preston (aka Mrs. Travolta) also died today.

Yeah. We haven't killed ourselves yet.

Impossible. High level Scientologists are immune to disease and they can cure any mental illness by hooking themselves up to a crude lie detector and taking vitamins.

Do a GIS. That wasn't boredom. The kid was empty.
 
2020-07-13 11:06:45 AM  
The man was Elvis Presley's grandson. He had no bloody clue what was he could be entitled to, yet he knew what his mama, Lisa Marie, could shake his clambake.

Damn, you weren't kidding. There is literally not a single picture of this young man anywhere on the 'net that isn't a cry for help.

Hank Williams Sr died at age 29, not 27, Hank Williams III is well above 27.  So yeah, completely off point.

Don't forget her serious opioid/pain killer abuse. Can't imagine what that's like growing up with that.

I really really hope there was a robust security detail separating Jackson from that boy during the marriage.
