Shoot the Mountain's Joe Blankenship has to pay the bills just like poor laid-off country legends and Rocky Dennis-looking comeback kings. Those with a sharp eye for inane detail can find him milling about as an extra in John Rich's video for "Shuttin' Detroit Down." How topical! And so full of class warfare! I didn't know Rich was a socialist! As an artist, I wonder if he would support a reformed WPA? I'm sure broke-ass local rock 'n' rollers would!
Bonus Blankenship after the jump!
This is not our favorite blonde's first foray into the glamorous world of country music videos. See if you can spot him all fresh-and-freckle-faced in The Kinleys' "Somebody's Out There Watching," a song I believe was on the "Touched by an Angel" OST.
