There are 2 comments on the Murfreesboro Post story from Jan 12, 2014, titled VINSON: Family's exploits paved real life 'Thunder Road'. In it, Murfreesboro Post reports that:

"And there was thunder, thunder over thunder road/Thunder was his engine, and white lightning was his load/There was moonshine, moonshine to quench the devil's thirst/The law they swore they'd get him, but the devil got him first," Robert Mitchum sang in "The Ballad of Thunder," the theme song to the iconic movie "Thunder Road."

This article shed so much light on why I seemed to have gotten the "wild" upon birth. Perhaps also being raised by Luther and having Brenis as a best friend and role model contributed to the problems also. I wish I'd written down the stories they told me when I was a kid but I was too busy standing there in awe of my super heroes. Would love to read this whole book if at all possible. Thanks for publishing this wonderful article of two outlaws past.

Hearing these stories explained a lot about my "roots". I remember biting Luther as a child and getting back handed. Lol it shocked me.
