    This reminds me of a persistent point of debate within the Chicago record community:

    In the post-Billy Jack era, who has done more to further the cause of the bandito hat:

    a) Ecstacy from Whodini


    b) Stevie Ray Vaughn?

    (And no write-in bullshit for Paul Mooney or your man O-Zone, as they both turned their back on the bolo lid and sold out big time, the former perpetrating with the doo-doo-dumb doo-rag, and the latter perpetrating with Lucinda Dickey [Who my girl Sara knows, by the way--not that I'm bragging or anything, but, you know, it is what it is...and no, I can't put you on. You need to boogaloo, shrimp.].)

    Definitely Stevie Ray. I think Ecstacy always looked a bit, how do you say, suspect in that hat, and I mean that in a way that the original bandits almost certainly did not intend.

    Chuck D - Crisp Baseball Hats.....Specifically the Classic Pittsburg Pirates yellow on black joint.

  • Marvin gaye, red hat on cover of let's get it on...

    A very good friend actually has a story about this hat...
    Her mother was a jeweler in Tennessee. Marvin came to town, and asked her to bring some of her silver and turquoise for him to look at. Thrilled, she puts together a case of her best stuff. Goes to his hotel room, and he asks her to take a look. She opens the case.

    "I'll take it all, sweetie." Pays her huge money, and throws in the red hat.

    She lost it when she had to flee from the feds a couple years later.
    As far as I know, this is all true; she has no reason to lie, and this girl is connected in ways on high that make this story seem totally true.
