Singer/songwriter/guitarist/protagonist of the 1969 novel A Slipping-Down Life and the 1999 film of the same name based on the novel. Played by Guy Pearce in that film.

His real first name is Bertram. He's from the fictional small North Carolina town of Pulqua in fictional Pulqua County.

On her way home from school one day, she saw a poster in a laundromat window. "Rock the Nite Away!" it said. "Pulqua's first all-local rock show!" Below that was a column of names that she had never heard of: the Huddlers, Spoony and James, Daphne Liggett. And at the bottom, Drumstrings Casey.
