Thread Name: a moral dilemma
Subject: RE: a moral dilemma
Robbie Robertson has a great anecdote about how indignant he was on seeing an unknown name beside his as the 'writers' on some records he made with Ronnie Hawkins - who tried to explain that this was just 'how things work'. Ronnie Hawkins later, in New York City, introduced Ronnie to the other name - and Robbie realized he was dealing with gangsters, and quickly concluded that discretion was the better part of valour.
