Bill “Watermelon Slim” Homans is nothing if not a renaissance man. He attended
Middlebury College in Vermont on a fencing scholarship but dropped out to enlist
in the Army for the Vietnam War. While laid up in a Vietnam hospital bed, he
taught himself upside-down, left-handed slide guitar. He worked as a truck
driver, a forklift operator, a saw mill hand, a funeral officiator and at times
as a small-time criminal. Due to the latter vocation, he fled Boston to lay low
in Oklahoma where he farmed watermelons, hence his stage name. He’s earned two
undergrad degrees along with a master's. He painted art and briefly joined Mensa.
Oh, and he likes to read Shakespeare and bowls a steady 240.
No surprise then that he draws from a plenty diverse range of influences to form
his unique brand of raw and honest blues. It’s music as interesting as the man.
