Like so many cool people in the boom generation, Kinky Friedman first saw the world through the Peace Corps in the sixties. Kinky did his PC time in Borneo as an agriculture extension worker, wherein he introduced the Frisbee to the natives and taught farming techniques to people who had been farming successfully for thousands of years. But it was in Borneo that Kinky began to write the tunes that would propel the rest of his life. Kinky had formed his first band, King Arthur & the Carrots while a student at the University of Texas, prior to his Peace Corps stint, but when he returned to the states, he really got serious with his second band, Kinky Friedman and The Texas Jewboys, the unit for which he is most famous, musically.Meanwhile, Kinky continues to “spit out books like sunflower seeds,” with one currently available at his tour stops, 'Heroes of a Texas Childhood,' and a brand new co-write with old pal, Billy Bob Thornton, called 'The Billy Bob Tapes - A Cave Full Of Ghosts' (foreword by Angelina Jolie) now in stores everywhere. Even more exciting is the upcoming co-write with Willie Nelson, due in the fall of 2012, and titled, 'Roll Me Up And Smoke Me When I'm Gone.'As if he needed to be more legendary, Kinky has now been immortalized on stage, with a play called 'Becoming Kinky....the World According to Kinky Friedman.' Written by Ted Swindley, who created the long-running hit 'Always....Patsy Cline,' the work is in previews in 2012, starring the afore-mentioned Jesse Dayton.Kinky has just finished the first leg of his fourth major tour in the last three years, Kinky Friedman's BiPolar Tour. It followed his Springtime For Kinky Tour of middle America, his Go West Young Kinky west coast tour, and his tour of Australia with another legend, Van Dyke Parks, which some were tempted to call, Asunder Down Under, but which was a huge success. In the works for 2012-2013 are a Russian movie production of one of his books, another fantastic co-write with a good friend (details of which cannot be released yet), and a full Euro-tour. Meanwhile, the Kinkster, who has not officially ruled out another shot in the political arena, insists he be addressed by his proper and rightful title: 'Governor of the Heart of Texas.' The boot fits. And he's wearing it.
