Congrats to the Human Cannonball

Webb Wilder, Last of the Full Grown Men, is being inducted into the Mississippi Musicians' Hall of Fame today!

I've been a fan since Hybrid Vigor (his second record) when I used to put "Human Cannonball" on every mix tape I made for anyone. It wasn't a big favorite of the girls I was trying to impress (I always had trouble turning women on to good music instead of the crap on the radio), but my brother loved it. I've never been to a Webb Wilder show, unfortunately, but I have a few bootleg recordings.

Remember the Webb Wilder Credo, kids: Work hard, rock hard, eat hard, sleep hard, grow big, wear glasses if you need 'em.
