Brucie,
Oh yeah, Dick Glass. He had a semi-regular gig at a club in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn when I was in college. He put out an album called "The Well-Rounded Dick Glass," a pun on his being a bit overweight.
He wrote a pretty good song about being a folksinger always on the road. The only lines I recall are "I passed by here/ I'm going to die here..."
He was known in New York for singing "They're Laying Eggs Now." I know I saw him; I'm pretty sure it was at the Gaslight or Gerde's Fok City.
