    I actually remember Jason and the Scorchers being on MTV



    An old Dylan cover. Fun trivia: "To live outside the law you must be honest" was the tagline to The Batman and the Outsiders comic.

    Speaking of Lefty Frizzell, in the late 1940s he became friends with Ray Price, who was just breaking into the industry as a songwriter. Frizzell helped Price get established in Nashville, where he became close friends with Hank Williams. (When Hank's wife kicked him out of the house for drunkenness, he moved in with Price.) Price went on to become a major star, and he in turn mentored the young Willie Nelson when he was starting out. Here's Ray Price with one of his hits, "Crazy Arms".

    I believe Lefty had a hand in helping Merle Haggard at his start, too (though Wynne Stewart was the Hag's biggest mentor). As for Ray Price (who also gave Roger Miller his first break, BTW), very early songs of his sound like ol' Hank himself. What a journey he made from that time to when I first heard him back in the early '70s!

    My favorite Lefty karaoke song. Saginaw, Michigan is also great.
