Subject: RE: Interesting Townes Van Zandt Article
It certainly is a mess.From what I've read about Townes, his life was a mess at times as well, but he kept producing those great songs. The poets words live on and I for one will keep his songs alive. It's amazing when you sing one of Townes songs someone will always come up to you and ask about it. I have had a great time introducing many people to the work of TVZ and they become instant fans.I am especially pleased to have introduced TVZ to young people in our folk scene. Now they are coming back to me with Townes material they have learnt. As you can see from my Mudcat name I admire the mans work and will continue to push his poetry to who ever is interested. Regards.
