Legendary Entertainers

As we go into the Memorial Day Weekend we thought we would list the Top 7 Rock/Country Stars who served in the United States Military.  They are in no particular order.

Johnny Cash served in the U.S. Air Force during the Korean War and spent most of his career in Germany. He bought his first guitar at a pawn shop in Germany and taught himself to play during his free time at the base.

B.B. King In Concert At B.B. King's Blues Club At The Mirage

B.B. King enlisted in the military at age 18 while working in the cotton fields in Mississippi. But he couldn’t serve his country, a fact he has always regrets, because cotton field owners made a deal with the military to keep their field hands from being deployed.

Jimi Hendrix was given the choice to serve his country or to go to prison in 1961 after being caught stealing cars.  He picked the military and was stationed in Fort Campbell, Kentucky. According to those in charge they let him go after a year because he wasn’t the world’s best soldier.

Elvis Presley - skinny

Elvis Presley spent two years in the active military and four years in the reserves and spent most of his time in Germany. He was given the option to be on a special force that is in charge of entertaining the troops but he chose to enter the standard army – which impressed many of his fans and peers.

Jerry Garcia joined the military as punishment for stealing his mother’s car and smuggled his guitar in with him. He spent most of his free time playing and working on his guitar skills and left after 9 short months.

Ray Manzarek of the Doors spent time in the forces stationed in Thailand when his initial stab at law school wasn’t to his liking. He spent a lot of time entertaining the troops playing keyboards. Rumor has it he was discharged he told the base shrink he thought he was turning gay.

Kris Kristofferson was an Army Ranger and Helicopter Pilot, Kristofferson reached the rank of Captain and was offered an Instructor job at West Point- but turned it down.
