22. It's Phil Ochs
Edited on Tue May-31-05 12:19 AM by The empressof all
"Pleasure of the Harbor", "Rehersal for Retirement",

His music still makes me weep:

If you have never heard of him or his music-please do yourself a big favor and get to know him. He was and is an inspiration.



"And the night comes again to the circle-studded sky
The stars settle slowly, in loneliness they lie
Till the universe explodes as a falling star is raised
The planets are paralyzed, the mountains are amazed
But they all glow brighter from the brilliance of the blaze
With the speed of insanity--then he dies!" (Phil Ochs)
