Watch Out! Morrissey Covers Waylon Jennings’ ‘Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way?’

Morrissey Covers Waylon Jennings

Growing up as country and metal as my primary cultural staple I never caed for The Smiths (too whiney, though “How Soon Is Now’ is badass) and was never a Moz solo fan (too mopey and pseudo clever) But I do have to give the man credit for pulling off a damn fine rendition of ‘Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way?’

Last Saturday from the stage of the The Visalia Fox Theatre Morrissey, dressed like a paunchy X Men, and his cracker-jack band gave his all to Waylon Jennings’ first single from the album Dreaming My Dreams’ album. A not too subtle middle finger to Music Row that was released 40 years to the month and Jennings’ fourth number one on the country chart as a solo artist.

I do like the idea of a crowd of Morrissey fans largely wondering what the hell they were listening to.

    Dude,

    Morrissey covers songs on a fairly regular basis. And we, the Fandom, are not unfamiliar with everyone else. We just like good music that says something.
