Songwriting icon Guy Clark was among five acts inducted to the Austin City Limits Hall of Fame on Thursday night at the TV show's Moody Theater, but while Jason Isbell sang "Desperados Waiting for a Train" in his honor, Clark was in an Austin hospital waiting to see a doctor.
On the golf course, Scarface of the Geto Boys is Brad Jordan, like on his birth certificate. He may have taken his stage name from the blood-soaked 1983 movie 'Scarface' that starred Al Pacino as a maniacal drug lord, but there’s no hint of gangsta swagger when he sets foot on the links. “I play golf every day if I can, but it’s not fun and games for me,” says the hip-hop pioneer on an overcast afternoon in May at Hermann Park, a public golf course in his hometown of Houston. Jordan won’t play with people who are drinking beer or clowning around.
