Watermelon Slim Dreams Of Working With Ry Cooder
By 2008 he'd notched up 34 award nominations and several wins. But he's not expecting to climb much higher in terms of popularity. Slim – real name Bill Homans, whose most recent album is this year's Bull Goose Rooster – tells the Montgomery Advertiser:
"About the only thing I could see that might do it is if Ry Cooder would collaborate on one of my albums. If I could work with Ry Cooder I would be a freaking made man. He's my dream producer."
In the meantime he's happy enough being "maybe minor league, but still a pro" – and he doesn't feel any regret that success came late to him. "I wasn't talented enough to do it sooner," he states. And what he had to say about when he will stop.
