HARRISON, GEORGE
[1943 - 2001]

Musician, songwriter and film producer, Harrison's dinner party encounter with George Greif turned into an all night exchange of Buckley stories. Harrison was a big Buckley fan and created the song Crackerbox Palace as a result of his meeting Grief.

HARRISON, ROD

Buckley interpreter and actor, Rod Harrison lives in Sante Fe, New Mexico. He is an accomplished and multi-talented actor, dancer, and standup comedian. He has an eerie resemblance to Lord Buckley and his considerable acting skills send his performance way on up into the high altitudes of the Hiposphere.

HENDERSON, DORRIS (Lady Dorris)
[1933-2005]

When you're listening to the Great Master do The Nazz on that gone piece of wax from the Ivar Concerts, and you dig the sweetest, deepest, most ebony of timbres backing up His Lordship, then you are deeply diggin' Lady Dorris Henderson. Lady Dorris was way gone with the folk music scene and in the mid '60s made the scene in London Town where she did two albums with master string man John Renbourn. Her Grace has enjoyed a long and illustrious singing career and is considered one of the British Isles greatest imports. Lady Dorris is still singing and still swingin' and lives quite happily in the Ol' Smoke. So direct those lobes to her two great albums: There You Go (Columbia Records) and Watch The Stars (Fontana Records)


 
HENRY

Buckley's brilliantly twisted version of the Walter Mitty character. As the establishing shot hits the screen in Buckley's word film Murder, we find Henry and his wife in a flat in Greenwich Village, Henry is covered in blood, the head of his wife "is not on her body". Henry's histrionic psycho-sexual confession does homage to the obligatory harsh-lamp-in-the-suspects-face scene in the noir movies of the 1950s.

HENZEL, RICHARD

Chicago area stage and film actor and voice over artist. His Majesty the Thespian dug deeply into the role of His Lordship in the recent Prop Theatre production of Charles Pike's Seven Ply Gasser. Henzel is known widely in the mid west for his uncanny interpretations of characters as wide ranging as Ronald Reagan and Mark Twain. Henzel will also be familiar to filmgoers as the radio voice in Bill Murray's Groundhog's Day. Henzel will also be familiar to filmgoers as the radio voice in Bill Murray's Groundhog's Day.

HERMANSKI, GENE
[1920 - 2010]

Brooklyn dodger Gene Hermanski appeared, along with NY Yankee Phil Rizzuto, as one of the stooges for Lord Buckley's Chairs routine on Ed Sullivan's first television program "Talk of the Town" in 1949.


 
HOBSBAWM, ERIC (Francis Newton)
[1917 - 2013]

Eric Hobswbawm is one of the wiggiest of the wig stretches in the Lord Buckley demi-monde. Marxist scholar, theorist and historian, prodigious author and occasional jazz writer (under the nom de jazz Francis Newton), Eric was born, appropriately enough for an author, in Alexandria, Egypt in June of 1917. His father was English, his mother Viennese. He grew up in Vienna and Berlin and found himself, at the age of fifteen, orphaned and living in Britain. He took his PhD at Cambridge in 1947. His life, his efforts and his experiences reach far beyond the boundaries of this small description. Suffice it to say that he dug The Lord and laid a beautiful tribute on the populance with his rememberance "Death of a Peer".

HOROWITZ, MIKHAIL

Performer and writer. Mikhail's performance of his The Shooting of Dan's Guru at the April 12, 1996 Buckley 90th Birthday Bash was a highlight of the evening. Horowitz's brilliant use of language and parody was much in the offing. Dig this crazy take on a take on the Faux For All page.

HOSTETTER, JOHN

Actor and stand up comedian. Hostetter's impressions of Buckley on Roger Steffan's three part series on Lord Buckley brought the spirit of His Lordship right into the studio with performance of His Lordship's routines and Buckley's description of an LSD experience. Catch Prince John's act on the Murphy Brown show.

HUMES, HAROLD L. "DOC"
[1926 - 1992]

Novelist, one of the founders of the the Paris Review. Lord Buckley was to have done a voice over for Humes film project Don Peyote, but the bugbird got to His Lordship before His Lordship could get to the podium. On November 12, 1960, broke, scared and hungry (having been the victim of New York City police harrassment) Lord Buckley called Hume for help. Hume sent him money but alas it was a sad drag for His Lordship took a cab very soon after that. Humes helped to create and was the leader of the Citizens Emergency Committee after Buckley's death. Humes wrote an article for the May 1961 issue of Swank magazine titled His Lordship's Last Days.
