Hank Williams (1933-1953) was a soul singer, a blues singer, a country singer who sang from the heart. Even his silly love songs came from somewhere deep. He was a rebel who got kicked off the Grand Ol' Opry by the squares, had a penchant for booze and pills, and died alone in the back of a Cadillac limo on New Year's Eve. "I'm a rollin' stone," he sang, and he meant it.
