Shooter Jennings wants to tour with robots. Which, if you’ve been following the songwriter’s eclectic career, makes complete and perfect sense. While he may be the son of leather-and-lace country couple Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter, the 39-year-old is less inspired by the outlaw Seventies than he is the outsized Eighties. He’s obsessed with vintage video games, plays guitar with custom-made picks featuring the likeness of He-Man villain Skeletor, and in 2016 released a superb tribute to electronic music pioneer Giorgio Moroder.
