Slim & the Supreme Angels

Biography

The Supreme Angels were already a favorite group when Howard “Slim” Hunt joined them in 1956. Hunt experienced developed in the tiny city of Walnut Grove, Mississippi, and he constantly enjoyed singing, especially gospel. Following a proceed to New Orleans and, from then on, to Milwaukee, he became a member of a local performing group in 1953. 3 years afterwards he used electric guitar, and was asked to become listed on the Supreme Angels, touring together all of those other calendar year until that incarnation of the group disbanded in 1957. Still left with touring schedules to fill up, Hunt kept the Supreme Angels name and continued. Although account of the group was continuously changing, the Angels held the product quality high, getting perhaps one of the most well-known and flexible gospel quartet groupings around under Hunt’s command, because of his stirring and soaring business lead vocals as well as the great electric guitar playing of Robert “Glucose” Hightower. The group released many albums, in early stages for Nashboro Information, and afterwards for Malaco Information, most of them documented live, before Hunt’s loss of life in 2007. Hightower transferred this year 2010.

#Fact
1 Listed #500 in Pro Wrestling Illustrated's Top 500 wrestlers in the world in 1991.
2 A movie buff, he enjoys the films of Frank Capra and Burt Lancaster, and has even been a guest host on TCM's "The Essentials".
3 Was the 1982 Division II Shot Put Champion while attending Cal State University Los Angeles.
4 He has commonly been listed as 6' 7", especially back in his wrestling days, but is actually about 6' 5".
5 Is blind in his right eye.
6 Played Klaang in the first episode of Star Trek: Enterprise (2001). Klang was the first Klingon (even though it was in a prequel) that Starfleet ever encountered.
7 During his brief stint in the World Wrestling Federation in 1989, Lister was promoted as frustrated with being billed below Hulk Hogan in that year's No Holds Barred (1989), and thus wanting to get his revenge in a real-life wrestling confrontation (in the movie, Hogan's character defeats Zeus at the end). The "feud" parlayed into a series of tag-team matches, pitting Lister -- who wrestled as his movie character Zeus -- and his partners (usually Randy Savage [aka "Macho Man"] and Ted DiBiase [aka "Million Dollar Man"]) vs. Hogan and Ed Leslie (aka "Brutus Beefcake"); when not wrestling, he sometimes came down as a menacing second for either DiBiase or Savage in their matches against Hogan or Beefcake, interfering at every opportunity. During his WWF matches, Zeus "no sold" his opponents' wrestling moves (that is, pretended like an opponent's moves didn't hurt the wrestler in the least) to generate fan heat and create the impression Zeus was invincible. His in-ring finisher was the neck-wrencher, which he ostensibly used to "break" opponents' necks and set them up for an easy pin fall loss. Lister's wrestling career only lasted for about six months.
8 Weighed 300 lbs at the time of Universal Soldier (1992).
9 He also had a brief stint in WCW World Championship Wrestling. He was known as Z-Gangsta.
10 Career got started by actor/ director Jimmy Bridges (older brother of actor Todd Bridges) when Jimmy introduced Tiny to his father, Jim Bridges, who was a talent agent in Hollywood after which Tiny worked in 3 movies his first year in the business.
