Well, tell ya the truth, Alan, I've buried most of my clunkers so deep that a George Bush Bunker Buster bomb wouldn't get to 'um...

But I did write one song back around '71 entitled "
Piss in the Wind" about a Volkswagen bus I owned... Might have performed it once before burying it...

Alot of my early songs were real beatnicky because I had been influnenced by the beat poets like Laurance Ferlinghetti and Gregory Kelso and the like and, well, beat poems make lousy songs...

But, now, I did write a song about a train tunnel that collapsed on a train in Richmond, Va. and I tried too hard to include the entire story and it ended up an 11 minute song that is so long winded that, though I recorde it, I'd never perform the blasted thing in public...
