As I was finishing up my HW tribute show Ronald from Jonges v/d Vlakte showed up with a Dutch version of “Tears in my Beer”. The amazing thing about Williams is that he was every bit as popular as Bing or Sinatra & people used to faint watching him on stage – there was a mild precursor case of Beatlemania in effect whenever he performed. This was partly enflamed by his pelvic gyrations of the midsection [mild and subtle compared to Elvis no doubt] but also his posture & his physical relation to the stage, his guitar. He was lanky & actually, to my eyes, had a certain Joey Ramone appeal – tall & gawky, naive & pained.
