Wayne Wagonwheels III
« on: January 21, 2008, 11:10:54 PM »
In todays Horace, there's a poster for Wayne Wagonwheels III. The name has a familiar ring to it... is the character based on anyone we know?

I saw that. Singing about running over a kitten. Very funny. I liked the fact he had a number as part of his name.

Something amusing about that, hmmm?

Not amusing particularly, but maybe I'm just a little envious. I quite admire people who have numbers after their names - particularly Kings, and to a lesser degree, Popes who precede the numbers ten and above.

Since I was a kid, I've always wanted to write a book about James III, but sadly I know very little about him, other than his first name, and that he was a King. I bet he had some stories to tell!

He was also the third king called James.

Oh yeah - I'd realised that of course.

Anyway, we're taking the spotlight away from Wayne Wagonwheels!

Wayne Wagonwheel III has appeared off and on for years.  There's a real country singer with a similar name---something like Wayne Loudwright III---I just adapted it. I prefer the name I gave to The Nomad when he had a brief spell as a country singer----Hank Tumbleweed.

There's a guy called Porter Waggoner too, apparently he was Dolly Parton's mentor.

This thought has come right out of the blue, but there was a mythical Greek warrior called Stentor, whose incredibly loud voice made him an ideal herald during the Trojan wars.
I wonder if Stentor had a mentor?

He had a pet centaur.
