Can anyone tell me what happened to Hamilton Camp? Someone told me that he passed away, but I think they were confusing him with Bob Gibson. Is Hamilton still around?

To my knowledge, Hamilton (formerly Bob) Camp is still alive. Bob Gibson is most definitely not.

Far as I know Hamilton Camp is still acting and doing voices for cartoons as well as commercials. I enjoyed his singing and I wish he did more.

I think his earliest work as a film actor was in The Black Sheild of Falworth, with Tony Curtis, Janet Leigh, and a very young Clint Eastwood. (But I could be wrong)

I wish he would record again too. I saw him in concert with Judy Collins many years ago and he was great. He also had a very funny and touching episode in MASH....glad to know he's still around, at least, even if he is doing cartoon voices.....and probably laughing all the way to the bank...

Always an interesting performer. I played some of his Dylan versions for Peter T last week. He used a Gibson Florentine guitar on a couple of early recordings and the sound was distinctive to say the least. What I remember him best for was a hilarious bit on WKRP IN Cincinatti when he played the owner of a stereo store. Johnny Fever was doing a remote when the store suddenly was robbed. Hamilton (oh he became "Hamid" for awhile) was running around the store screaming, as WKRP's faulty wiring hook-up started destroying all the stereos and TVs in the store. You had to be there!

Last saw him in one of those summer camp comedies (I don't think it was in the "Ernest goes to..." series, but a similar vein).

If I remember correctly, Hamilton Camp's 'Mr.Sock' got him a section 8 discharge in MASH, much to Klinger's chagrin. Funny and touching show. But I remember him best for his version of Dylan's Girl from the North Country. Strange, haunting, hard edged and yet poignant.

Really talented fellow. Regards, Chance

Ham Camp was in "BIRD"---a pretty fine film on the life of Charlie Parker. He played "the mayor of 52nd Street"---sort of a barker who led people to the various jazz clubs on the street.

He was also in a pretty good "Hill Street Blues" episode that I just happened to see the night before Gibson and Camp were on my old live NPR radio show called the FLEA MARKET----mid-1980s. Gave me an excuse to talk about the fact that every time I turn on a TV I'd see Hamilton Camp in a re-run of a show I'd not seen him in the first time around.

My brother was in the audience at the Gate Of Horn nightclub in Chicago when "Bob 'n Bob" made their classic live LP.

Yep, Hamilton Camp is doing well as far as I know. He wasn't able to be at the '96 party in Chicago that Bob Gibson tossed for himself where so many of us sang for Bob 'cause he wasn't able to play or sing any longer. After that part, Bob went home to Portland, Oregon where he was living with hia daughter. As it turned out it was a farewell party because he died exactly a week after the party. (I'll always think that he knew.)

There's a pretty good bio out on Bob Gibson's life-- by Carole Bender with Bob-----published by Alan Shaw at FOLK ERA RECORDS. (They've got a website---just put it into a search engine.) It comes with a wonderful CD inside---made from some never before issued tapes in Chicago at the club called Mother Blues'". Has a great "No More Cane On The Brazos" as well as a version of Sleepy John Estes' "Going Down To Brownville" with Paul Butterfield sitting in on mouth harp. Bob was a bit 'out of it' from various substances he'd been consuming, but it's a classic CD of rare Gibson tracks. It's worth the price of the book. The book is good for those of us who were there, But many facts were off the mark I thought. My memories don't jibe with some others who were there back then too.

I am happy to announce that Hamilton has a new official web site at http://hamiltoncamp.com, and yes he is well, currently acting in a Twelfth Night production, and is working on a new CD with his son Ray. This thread seemed as good a place as any to post this. I hope you enjoy the site.

"He and She". Damn fine show.

My first awareness of Hamilton Camp as a songwriter was when Gordon Lightfoot recorded "Pride of Man" on his first album (way, WAY back).

Very intense, strong imagery. And after the initial shock and disbelief of Nine Eleven, one of the first things that came to my mind was the verse:

"And Babylon, that mighty city, rich in treasure, wide in fame;
It shall cause thy towers to fall and make it be a pyre of flame.
Oh God, the pride of man,
Broken in the dust again."

Chilled me to the core.

Yes, I agree. A lot of Lightfoot fans listened again to Pride Of Man after 9/11. Very chilling. It's funny, because quite a few songwriters sat down and wrote something specifically for 9/11, yet this song - written about another event in ancient history - really captures the feelings and imagery perfectly. FYI, if you are interested in Hamilton's recording, it's on his CD Paths Of Victory, available from his web site. That CD also includes 7 (!) Dylan covers, some being very obscure songs. I'll be adding clips of the songs in the next few days.
