The IND's favorite Psyouthern rocker Dege Legg has his song "Too Old to Die Young" featured on the soundtrack of Quentin Tarantino's latest film "Django Unchained."
Brother Dege is finally hitting the silver screen. According to the area's preeminent rockabilly, legendary filmmaker Quentin Tarantino has hand-picked the song "Too Old to Die Young" to include on the soundtrack to his next film Django Unchained.
"The loose story I gathered is Johnny 'Rotten' Lydon played my tune on a radio show or something and Quentin liked it enough to contact me and ask about using the song," says Legg.
"They contacted me, because they'd heard and really loved the Brother Dege stuff," he says. "I don't have any connections in the Hollywood power structure, so this is not a story of power plays and big representation. I'm a swampbilly just making my little noise. I don't have a manager, booking agent, or even a real deal record label. I just do what I do and let things come to me."
