Harry Dean SINGS! ;)

Glad you're OK with all the Fires, Britzen...

...and yep, the only thing close to a Regret that I've ever heard Harry Dean utter, was that he never made a serious effort at pursuing his singing career. He loved Music, and you can find a number of videos and recordings out there, where he accompanies more established artists.

Also, in the bio-documentary by Sophie Huber, HARRY DEAN STANTON: Partly Fiction [2012], he sings a lot! I'd say easily half the film comprises simple headshots of HDS singing classic songs, as his friend Jamie James plays guitar. (Harry Dean played guitar, too, but I don't recall him actually pickin' during this doc.)

I haven't done a proper HDS-fest yet, myself...partly because he's been in so many films I enjoy, that I've watched him in several things very recently.

One Wim Wenders film that I've been "saving" -- and generally considered Harry Dean's finest role (and his only Lead) -- is PARIS, TEXAS. I'm in the Reservation line for it at the Library, so hope to get it in the next few weeks.

Stay safe, Britzen...and all!
DCG.

    One of the most underappreciated actors. He transformed so many roles, and a beautiful singer. I was just listening to his version of Blue Eyes Cryin' in The Rain. Now that we're getting rain and... more
