    He has warblers for more backup vocals.
    On trumpet, he has a puffin.
    Roadies are boobies and cuckoos (not too swift)
    Stage crew – cranes
    He had a partner, and she had hopes of becoming a starling, but she groused too much.
    His tax guy is a real turkey.

    Most to all singers and bands do NOT write their own music. They buy it ‘under the table’ from those who have actually written it.
    For example ‘Jump’ by the Pointer Sisters was actually written by a coworker of mine. I saw her writing it while she was supposed to be silk screening some stuff for Miller Beer at the time of the writing.

    As a singer/song writer I must disagree very strongly with the ALL part, some do and some don’t.

    I’ve played for a lot original bands. One was Robbin Thompson who was one of the original founders of Bruce Springsteen’s first band Steel Mill. I played for the Buddy Parker Band which opened for the likes of BB King, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Joe Bonamassa, etc. In all of the original bands, the vast majority of the music was written by the leader of the band or a corroboration of all of us in the band.
    Robbin wrote some music for Poco. I have a friend Ronnie Fetner who sells his music to country singers.
    Purchasing songs is very popular in country music; not as much in rock or blues.
    There’s my 2 cents worth. Here’s Buddy’s last concert before he had to be institutionalized for bi-polar disorder. I’m the drummer.

    My Songbird lyrics – Jesse Winchester

    Songbird in a golden cage
    She’d prefer the blue
    How I crave the liquor of her song.

    Poor bird who has done no harm
    What harm could she do ?
    She shall be my prisoner her life long.

    My songbird wants her freedom
    Now don’t you think I know ?
    But I can’t find it in myself
    To let my songbird go
    I just can’t let her go.

    O Lord, when your jeweler’s eye
    Peers into my soul
    O Lord, I am overcome with shame.

    Take me, Lord, and purify
    Heal me with a word
    Lord, I beg a gift I dare not claim.

    My songbird wants her freedom
    Now don’t you think I know ?
    But I can’t find it in myself
    To let my songbird go
    I just can’t let her go.

    Thanks, Just Joking

    Does anybody remember Jackson Browne?
    Can anybody forget The Eagles?

    There is a great documentary on the Eagles. It was 3 hours long and I was glued to the set the entire time.
