He played out here about ten years ago. It was right after the start of the Iraq war so there was a pro-military theme to the whole evening. He was selling his...was it BBQ sauce? He also had these t-shirts that showed an F-15, an American flag, and Saddam and Dubya's faces and said "Saddam, can you hear us now?"
Wish I'd bought one of those.
He's not usually thought of as a songwriter but yesterday I was listening to some of the early Starday recordings and was amazed by all the great songs he wrote: "Why Baby Why," "Long Time to Forget," "Seasons of My Heart," "Just One More," "Ragged But Right"...damn.
