by the name of Ukelele Russ on his blog and I thought -
Not Russell Crowe?
King Uke says -
" I happened to see a video of PHB on Ukulele Russ's facebook page which blew me away.
It is Episode 422 of Alaska Underground Live."
The above music clip "The Turtle Song" goes for 4:22 minutes,
even though is says 4:23 on the screen shot.
His singing and uke playing are great, but I have to say that it wasn't the kind of turtle song I enjoy listening to.
The lyrics make me gag...sorry...and yeah, pun intended. ;-)
I like the instrumental tune on King Uke's blog post much better, I have to admit.
It's funny how you tend to equate ukulele playing with Hawaii
(well I do anyway) and not places like Alaska.
I found this bit of info enlightening too from KU -
" Russ is a hunting and fishing type of guy.
I thought he was pulling my leg one night when he said he's been out bear baiting.
Surely not! :-O
FACT: Alaskans are allowed to catch 3 black bears and 1 brown bear a year for food.
Russ's dinner that day was going to be moose ribs. "
I wonder what the Grizzly Man would have thought of Ukelele Russ
if a bear hadn't eaten the Grizzly Man and his girlfriend?
Which brings another tune to my mind...sorry King;-)

King Uke assures me that they do.
Although I think one of them may be the King in a bear suit?-)
