Inspired by the cheating post, I had a thougt. Let's take a moment to reflect on a dude who deserves to be remebered for more than Pink truckers caps and 1200 dollar belt buckles. Let hear the real stuff on old Kenneth Howard aka Von Dutch. Frank Palmer told me a this one. Seems in Dutch's heyday, one of the mags did a feature on pin-strippers and a few different writers were dispatched throughout So Cal to interview different cats. The mag's editor realized a mistake but was on dealine and couln't do anything about it. No one covered off on the king hisself, Von Dutch! So Mr. Editor hopped in his car and drove over to explain the oversight to Mr. Howrd and offered to persnalypen an exclusive on Von Dutch for an upcoming issue. The editor, feeling as if Dutch seemed satisfied then asked Dutch if he wouldn't mind doing a little something on the editor's personal ride while he went off and drafted the Von Dutch's big "exclusive" for the magazine. A few days later, the editor brought back the "exclusive" and was miffed to find that Dutch hadn't done squat to his car. Seems all he'd done is paint a tiny musical note on the dash. The editor figured he it was Howard's little way of getting back at the slight of being left out of the original article. He left with his car none too pleased. Days later, a passenger slid the car's ashtry open and chuckled, "Wow. That's pretty cool." The editor looked down and both passenger and driver discovered an entire symphony orchestra was intricately hand-painted on the inside of the car's ashtray. Note to editor. You get what you pay for. Dunno if the exclusive ever ran. Hope I relayed it as well here, as Palmer (Who else?) told it to me. Now let's hear sum more!
