King of country
NEW YORK: Author Stephen King is a master at creating characters, but when Shooter Jennings came calling, he decided to become one, playing a central figure in the musician’s coming album, Black Ribbons.
King is the voice of Will O’ The Wisp, a radio talk-show host being phased out because of censorship. He spends his last hour on the air delivering a diatribe about the decline of America and playing the music of an important band – which happens to be Jennings’s new band, Hierophant.
Black Ribbons, due on March 2, is Jennings’s first CD in two years. – Sapa-AP
