January 7, 2006
January 7, 2006, Greencastle, Ind. - A new magazine being launched by Hunter S. Thompson's widow Anita will include contributions from "musician Jimmy Ibbotson of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and a close neighbor of the Thompsons' Owl Creek Farm," reports Colorado's Vail Daily News. Ibbotson is a 1969 graduate of DePauw University. "Titled the Woody Creeker, the magazine is scheduled to hit newsstands in February," writes John Colson. The publication, which will have a limited printing of about 1,000 copies, will focus on the Woody Creek neighborhood where Anita Thompson lives "and home to some of the Roaring Fork Valley's more eccentric residents."
Ibbotson recorded The Ballad of The Monon Bell in 1985. The music video for the song is embedded below.Back
