I also wanted to let fellow posters know that I have finally taken the initiative and started a weblog. I hope to post at least one new article each day on whatever ideas and concerns pop into my mind. It is named something to say if anyone hears. You can find it at ifanyonehears.blogspot.com; hopefully this will not be considered a conflicting interest.

Please stay safe in the US Northeast,

About Jimmy Buffett, Zuzu wrote:
  According to Buffett Chicago was the first place outside the South were he became popular and spent a lot of time there and hung out with Old Town Folk artist (John Prine and Steve Goodman). Steve Goodman and Jimmy Buffett were actually close friends. They co-wrote a few songs together. Both were huge Cubs fans. Goodman was supposed to sing the National Anthem at one of the Playoff games but lost his 16 year battle with leukemia only a couple of weeks before the Playoffs. Buffett filled in for Goodman and dedicated the song to Goodman's memory.

Jimmy Buffett claimed that David Allen Coe's Divers Do it Deeper plagerized Changes in Lattitudes Changes in Attitudes. Buffett said "I would have sued him, but I didn't want to give Coe the pleasure of having his name in the paper." David Allen Coe's response was a song titled Jimmy Buffett where he kept saying throughout the song that Jimmy Buffett doesn't live in Key West anymore and towards the end says that they should get drunk and scr**.

About Kris Kristofferson, Zuzu wrote:
  Janis Joplin's posthumous hit, Me and Bobby McGee was actually a cover of a Kris Kristofferson song. The two were dating not too long before her death.

Kris Kristofferson is responsible for the discovery of John Prine and Steve Goodman. He was playing at a club in Chicago were Steve Goodman was also playing. Paul Anka met up with Kristofferson after playing at another club in Chicago. He heard Steve Goodman and said he would pay his plane fare to New York. Steve told them that if you think I'm good you have to hear my friend, John Prine. So he called John and they went to the club John Prine was playing at and Paul Anka agreed to pay for his plane fare to New York too.

Kris Kristofferson also helped them both out. He tried to pitch Steve's City of New Orleans to Johnny Cash who passed on it because he didn't want to be known as the guy who sang only train songs. Johnny Cash did eventually record it after Arlo Guthrie had a hit with it.
