What Unknown Hinson is not: a novelty act
Why one could be forgiven for thinking he is: his Dracula-meets-Johnny Cash looks; song titles such as "I Make Faces (When I Make Love)" and "Alkyhol Withdrawal"
What sets him apart: his virtuosic guitar playing, which led to the creation of Reverend Guitars' signature Unknown Hinson model
Essential tracks: the southern-rock stomper "Peace, Love, and Hard Liquor;" the appropriately epic "The King of Country Western Troubadours"
Essential facial hair: his mutton-chops
Famous fans: The Simpsons creator Matt Groening, and Billy Bob Thorton, who described Hinson as "one of my favorite songwriters and a genius picker"
Where you've heard him, other than his songs: as the voice of Early Cuyler on Adult Swim's Squidbillies
