It's a little known fact that Herman Melville's nautical epic, Moby Dick, was inspired of his visions of Kenny Rogers. Melville's ingenious use of symbolism replaced a gold-record hungry Kenny Rogers with a whale-obsessed Ahab.
Further readings prove that Ahab's journey to kill the sea beast mirrors Kenny Rogers' murderous bloodbath of a rise up the country music charts.
"Kenny wants whale steak, baby"
To date, over 14 whale's have died due to Kenny's search for another hit like The Gambler.
