1997 – heute (22 Jahre)
Handsome Hank and his Lonesome Boys formed in 1997 as a bluegrass band. They played at bluegrass jamborees and festivals for a few years, but soon began to specialize on the countrification of well-known rock and pop classics. The response was very positive and even rock celebrities such as Slash, Lemmy Kilmister and Frank Farian patted the band’s head. Handsome Hank's first CD Greatest Hits (East/West, Warner Germany) is a classic in its own right and the cover version of Black Hole Sun had worldwide radio airplay. The song even played during halftime of soccer game with St. Pauli at Millertor stadium!
The band toured in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and France. The follow up album Live at Murmansk also brought much warm applause and most of the shows of the tour were sold out.
A handful of years later Handsome Hank released a solo album entitled “sings about devils and angels”. It was recorded in Zurich’s HitMill studio and had a nice airplay in Switzerland.
Now Handsome Hank has gathered a new bunch of Pistoleros around him. He’s got a spanking brand new album in his saddlebag called “Roll down the Line”. And it’s hot! A classic Country record with many flavours and styles. Mariachi and Country pop, Bluegrass and Honky Tonk and a Piano ballad, too!
