I know every Memphian rolled their eyes when they saw Pharrell Williams blatantly crib the look of Sun Records artist D.A. Hunt, who recorded Sun single #183, "Lonesome Old Jail / Greyhound Blues" in June of 1953 and died in 1962. Williams has yet to issue an apology for ripping off Hunt's bad-ass hat look.
