Dewford Randolph Cox (1946-2007) was a highly influential musician born in Springberry, Alabama. He scored two #1 hits with Walk Hard, and Guilty As Charged. His mid 60's single Little Man became the unofficial anthem of the Midget Rights Activist movement of the 60's. Dewey's career started to go downhill once the 70's came around. From suffering writer's block to a failed variety show on the CBS network. In 2007, a tribute concert for Cox was held featuring Jewel, Lyle Lovett, Jackson Browne, and Ghostface Killah was held. At the end of the show after being introduced by Eddie Vedder, Cox performed his final masterpiece:Beautiful Ride. Sadly, Cox died just three minutes after the performance, which got rave reviews from fans and critics alike. Cox's music has had a major influence on several legendary artists, including The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Iggy Pop, The Ramones, Bob Seger, Tom Petty, Randy Travis, Garth Brooks, Tim McGraw, Billy Idol, Bryan Adams, Billy Joel, Kiss, The Goo Goo Dolls, Metallica, Bruce Springsteen, John Meyer (Mayer also believes Cox might be his father), and others. Jon Bon Jovi once described Cox as being a major influence on his songwriting. Cox is portrayed by actor John C. Reilly in the 2007 film "Walk Hard", which was released shortly after Cox's death.

Hahaha I actually watched this last night!!!

Great film with some great songs. I loved 'Darling' - how everything he sung was dirty before he paused and finished off the line xD

Also the Dylan take off with his nonsensical song sung completely straight was perfect.

I agree. Those were some of the best moments. My favorite scene though was the one with The Beatles. That scene was so hilarious.
