  • This guy is so much more than just Cats in the Cradle. One of the greatest story tellers ever, he has some of the best songs I've ever heard. A true legend, underrated. [2]

  • I'm converting my vinyl collection to digital. I've just converted "Verities & Balderdash". Wow... What a great album.
  • one of the most underrated musicians of his time.
  • I'm in the dance baaaand, on the titanic. Sing "Nearer, my God, to Thee". The iceberg's on the starboard bow, won't you dance with me?
