Born in a tree house, killed in a friend’s living room, and 86’d from his own funeral Blaze Foley is now a bona fide Texas legend. His songs are covered by Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, John Prine, Lyle Lovett, Nanci Griffith, Avett Brothers, and Ryan Bingham. Lucinda Williams' "Drunken Angel" is in tribute to Foley, who even inspired the Kings of Leon's new single "Reverend."
The new Deluxe Edition DVD has the extended version of the film and over 3 hours of special features, including rare archival performances by Blaze, more animation, deleted scenes, and candid interviews. A must have for anyone wanting to know more about Blaze’s life, music, and art.
