Phil Ochs

Some where between Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs got lost.

One of the best protest singers this country has ever seen, Ochs has influenced many of todays biggest stars (Kind of Like Spitting and Pearl Jam to name a few) but is relatively unknown by most people.

Simple guitars and words that really do show you how repetitive history can be make this the only artist I have been listing to these last few weeks. If his words dont get you thinking you surly are not paying attention to them.

Happy Fall everyone and make sure you vote this November.

I recently published a brief memoir of my experience of Phil Ochs that you might find of interest. You'll find it
