Much thanks for the info re: Crucifixion
I realize I wasn't clear in my closing paragraph. What I meant was that like Paul Clayton, Phil Ochs was another singer who died early, also in the shadow of Bob Dylan. And I couldn't remember whether Phil Ochs had taken his own life or died of other causes. And I couldn't recall how much of Phil's frustrations(if had some) were related to likewise being in the shadow of Dylan.
This thread has reinforced for me the power of folk music(however you choose to define it) in weaving the thread of who we are.
