Who Is Bones Hooks?
Just in case you were wondering…
Sometimes on the credits or category of a black man with a gun post you will see the name Bones Hooks. Who is that? Bones is the pseudonym of a mature, free man in America, chasing his dreams and loving his life. The name was taken from a not so famous black cowboy and horse breaker, Matthew Hooks (1867–1951), born on November 3, to former slave parents in Robertson County, Texas.
Some have said that Kenn Blanchard can’t sing. They may be right but Bones’ doesn’t care. The music sung as Bones Hooks represents Americana, Blues, Soul, Jazz, Rock, and Country. They are cover songs sung so Kenn doesn’t get sued for playing the original copyrighted music. Practice makes perfect. Singing on the show has helped train the ear of Kenn Blanchard to produce a more pleasing sounding show all around.
The songs you hear on the Urban Shooter Podcast frame and set the tone for each entertaining episode of this precarious cacophony of bits and bytes that sometimes even talks about guns. The show is about life, men’s issues, security, and what the great people in the gun community are thinking about that week. It is also to encourage and uplift those demonized by the ignorant.
Bones Hooks doesn’t have a bucket list. He is living the dream. He wanted to sing to thousands and has. It wanted to bring a smile you your lips and encourage you to sing along with a familiar song from your past that you may have forgotten.
While Bones may not win any awards for his singing, you have to admit he is entertaining and having a good time doing it.
