Well, yeah, but you make it sound like he was a lightweight pop musician. From what I gathered from trips to Louisiana, he was pretty well known as being a serious musician, leading bands that included Dr. John and Johnny Rivers (before they were famous). I actually always thought that Dion wrote "Abraham, Martin & John". I didn't much care who wrote "Snoopy..."

I didn't know Demeter owned the biodynamic wine certification. I also didn't know biodynamic meant following the teachings of Rudolf Steiner (founder of a Waldorf school system.) My hipster world turns full circle!

This is like not any kind of big deal, but I had no idea until today that the mid-'60s hit single "Summer Nights" was by Marianne Faithful.

 

Maybe I don't even really care about this.
