Phil Ochs

Postby ice nine » Tue Jan 24, 2012 8:11 pm

Watched the PBS documentary on Phil yesterday. Very interesting and complicated man. I would have thought that he and Dylan would have been good friends, but that was not the case. It sounded to me like Bob was jealous of Phil. Billy Bragg was in the documentary.

Saw this the other night too and was amazed to learn of his long and strong involvement with the more radical fringes of 60's culture. Knew of the enmity between him and Dylan. It is a sad story, his life. I admire how he kept his principles.
