Phil has never feared, personally or lyrically, to scamper out on a limb with a gleam inhis eye and a hacksaw in his hand. Sometimes a club owner or promoter will "suggest"that certain of his songs might ruffle a local feather or two but danged if he won't havethose very birds squarely in his corner before the night is done. Charm, guts and greatmaterial can get you a long way. Like Wile E. Coyote, he has a knack for recoveringfrom the most explosive circumstances but unlike that hapless canine he... [see more] usually endsup on top and grinning. This has been of immense help in his previous incarnations as atruck driver, roadie, huckster and bon vivant. Phil Lee likes to say that "at a hundred, myage, weight and IQ have all averaged out." Maybe so but if that's true he's sure gettingmaximum output in all three areas. He writes constantly, eats a sensible diet and,peripatetic as hell, he won't hesitate to haul out of his Nashville habitations in his pickupfor a gig in Wisconsin on a Friday, cannonball from there to Missouri on Saturday andhit Indiana on Sunday - after church of course.
