It was pretty difficult to make the story of Hunter S. Thompson's suicide Nashville-centric -- but not for the great Chet Flippo, who actually knew (and once attempted to corral) the man:


Jimmy Ibbotson of the Dirt Band was a neighbor of Hunter and loved him until the end, even though Hunter once shot Ibbotson's dog. Hunter had warned him that if his dog kept coming on his property and messing with his peacocks, he would shoot it. The dog kept it up. Hunter shot it. The dog survived and so did Ibbotson's friendship with Hunter. After all, in his mind, Hunter was just keeping his word.


Never mess with a man's peacocks.
