Thread Name: Lyr Req: Famous When Dead (Richard Thompson)
Subject: RE: Lyr: Richard Thompson Song, Famous When Dead
It's called "Now That I Am Dead". Thompson played it extensively live for a while, but it was actually written by John French (ex-Captain Beefheart drummer), and it can be found on the French Frith Kaiser Thompson album "Invisible Means". On that version, French takes the lead vocals, though Thompson plays guitar. The version with Thompson singing was only released as a bonus live track on the CD single of "I Feel So Good".
