My unplugged cover of the great song about Mardi Gras in New Orleans(this March 4)-written by Paul Cotton of Poco-from 1978; I met Paul Cotton and Rusty Young of Poco back in the 1990s-got their autographs-great guys and fine musicians.
Song I wrote about the year 1967---flower children, Haight-Asbury, anti-war protests. A little Indian sitar at the intro-get that eastern mystical feel, so predominant in a lot of 1960s music.Also 12-string electric guitar-The Byrds sound.
Song I wrote about the year 1968 in radical politics.1968--2013; 45 years gone-the same forces of oppression victimize us all--from Lyndon Johnson to Bush and now Obama. Photo-from the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City-John Carlos-black power.
My cover of the great song from the 1971 film "Billy Jack"-written by Dennis Lambert and Brian Potter. In tribute to the late star of "Billy Jack" - activist Tom Laughlin, who passed away at age 82 in Dec. 2013.
