Things are pretty darn busy around here concerning my more music related activities, so I'm a bit late in formally wishing Don "The Snake" Prudhomme some much deserved belated happy birthday wishes... This past Thursday April 6th was the drag racing living legend's 76th birthday... "The Snake" is considered by a majority of drag racing historians who are really  "in the know" as being the undisputed "King of Cool" among straightline motorsports circles. His history in the sport is long and strong and filled with tremendous accomplishments. "Snake" has done it all with his own brand of finesse. I remember meeting Don many moons ago at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park's NHRA Summernationals, and he was such a cordial gentleman to me-- a real class act of a man. If you'd like to learn more about Don Prudhomme, I suggest checking out the "Snake & Mongoose" movie that was released a few years back-- it tells the man's life story in an educational and entertaining fashion...
