Pete Drake :: Talking Steel Guitar

Pete Drake’s performance of his hit song, “Forever,” in the film Second Fiddle to a Steel Guitar is a proto-Hee-Haw flight of fancy. The assembled band members nod their heads back and forth to a hypnotic beat on a down-home, front porch set. Drake sits at a pedal steel emblazoned with his name and is dressed in a crisp suit. The scene has all the trappings of high honky-tonk decadence and country fancy. But when the verse comes around . . .
