Willie-o are you blending Barry McGuire and S/Sgt. Barry Sadler of "Green Berets" fame? Admittedly "Eve of Destruction" was no bargain (enough, enough, some of us said) but "Ballad of the Green Berets" realy was an abomination("put silver wings on my son's chest...").McGuire was a pretty harmless Los Angeleno and an honorary (Mamaandthe) Papa, and "Eve" was penned by P.F. Sloane. It's Barry McGuire's voice on the New Christy Minstrels' "Green Green (It's Green They Say").
