Earlier this year Buck Meek from the brilliant Big Thief released a solo album called Haunted Mountain. This coupled with the legend that is Uncle Buck on the telly recently had me thinking about all thinks Buck.
In addition to Mr Meek there is of course the Country legend Buck Owens whose band were the Buckaroos. Then we have the Canadian alternative hip hop artist Richard Terfry who goes by the more snappy stage name Buck 65.
No post about Bucks would be complete without a nod to Peter Buck a man of many bands most notably R.E.M. for whom he wrote many classic songs including the one below.
A couple of songs to finish off with .The Robbie Fulks number The Buck Stops Here name checks the aforementioned Mr Owens alongside other Country legends. Feeder go a stage further by referencing a factitious science fiction adventure hero.
That's me all out of Buck.
