The Dwight Stuff

April 18, 1993

Regarding "The Solitary Outsider," by Richard Cromelin (April 4):

Dwight Yoakam as the James Dean of country music? C'mon. James Dean was honest.

I'll buy Yoakam when he takes off that g.d. hat (if he's a byproduct of his dad's pompadour with the Vitalis curl, we'd like to see it) and stops yodeling every second word of a lyric.

Rather than Dean, he sounds more like Woody Allen with all that pretentious, pseudo-psychological, self-analysis. Anyone who would wear his hat during a Whoopi Goldberg interview needs more therapy than he can give himself.
