Hell-enanny with some fancy finger pickin' on his even fancier fiddle. That's a Gretsch white penguin to be exact, and Deke proudly pointed out that porno trash Jenna Jameson had posed with the guitar for an ad just before he got it. That sorta perked up the ears of the beer-boggled crowd, but it was Deke's can-kicking rendition of "Mule Skinner Blues" that scraped up the hair on every tattooed neck. "This is the only song you'll recognize," said Deke sadly, "Because it was on that Hootenanny sampler CD."
