I had no idea Hart was an excellent musician. In fact, he wrote many of the theme songs used by wrestlers back then. Even more impressive, he was in the Gentrys, a band from the 1960's. Their big hit was "Keep On Dancing" (although Hart was not the lead singer on it).
Hart has been a tireless and creative force in wrestling for decades. He is also one of the nicest people around. I have seen him pose for pictures and sign autographs long after his scheduled sessions were to end. I have talked to him several times about a multitude of subjects and he always gives full attention during each chat. The guy must have an endless supply of energy and enthusiasm.
