King of coun­try

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

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
