The James Barkley gang were well known outlaws in the town of Gold Dust during 1876. James Barkley thought if anyone found any gold in the town of Gold Dust they wouldn´t mind sharing, but he was dead wrong. Because no one in the town liked the James Barkley gang. One night when James Barkley and his gang were camping out planning their next stage coach robbery, James said, ´´There is a stage coach coming this way in the mid-morning around high noon and there is around $100,000 in cash and this will make us rich.´´ Black Jack chimed in and said, ´´James, this will make us famous outlaws.´´ James had a short fuse and if he got into an argument with someone, his six shooters did the talking, and that wasn´t a good thing. He was known as the fastest gun in the west. He wore a special calfskin vest with built-in holsters, containing two Colt .41 caliber revolvers. As the men were sleeping, one of James´s men by the name of Saddle Jack Thompson was snoring, and James was getting upset because he needed to get a good night´s rest in order to be focused on the stage coach robbery in the morning. So he woke up Saddle Jack and told him to stop snoring, but a few minutes later the snoring continued, so James pulled out one of his Colt .41´s and shot him in the head. The snoring stopped. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: James H Kiser. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/075990de/bk_rhde_002536_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
From the foreword by Ken Mansfield: ´´There are many stories about Waylon...the family man, the creative genius man, the quiet man, the king-of-the-six-day-roar man, the uncommon man, the legendary man, the bad-ass man.... They are all in this book.´´ In a signed copy of his autobiography, Texas-born country ´´outlaw´´ icon Waylon Jennings penned a personal note to his son Terry: ´´I did my best. Now it´s your turn.´´ Two decades later, Terry Jennings finally completes the true story of his father´s remarkable, unvarnished life with Waylon: Tales of My Outlaw Dad. Born when Waylon was only 19, Terry came of age just as Waylon´s career hit the stratosphere with hits like ´´I´ve Always Been Crazy´´ and ´´Good Hearted Woman´´, one of his famous Willie Nelson duets. Terry dropped out of high school and joined his dad on tour, and the two became more like brothers than father and son. On the road they toured with legends like Nelson, Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson, and Jessi Colter, Waylon´s fourth and final wife. Together father and son led a hard-partying lifestyle centered around music, women, and drugs. Waylon´s success - critical acclaim, best-selling albums, sold-out tours, and even TV stardom on The Dukes of Hazzard - was at times eclipsed by his demons, three divorces, crippling debt, and a depression that Terry traces to the premature death of Buddy Holly. (Waylon was supposed to be on Holly and Ritchie Valens´ doomed flight.) Through it all Terry worked on the touring crew, helped manage Waylon´s career, and became one of his father´s closest confidants. Debunking myths and sharing incredible never-before-told stories, this book is a son´s loving and strikingly honest portrait of his father, ´´the greatest outlaw country musician to grace this earth´´ and an unlikely but devoted family man. Waylon: Tales of My Outlaw Dad will resonate for generations of fans. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Christopher Ryan Grant.
