My longtime friend Harry Nilsson (from 1967 to 1994) scored this 1970 Videoclip -- "Without Her" -- which he'd originally cut for Capitol but after they fudged around for a year, he, with the help of friends, bought back his contract along with the master of this cut...and went on to RCA and fame as "Harry Who...?". I went on to even greater personal obscurity. He called me "The Best Kept Secret in America".

My friend Bob Segarini is still at it -- and still great!!! Check out the moves the Old Guy (we're the same age) is making! These days when I wake up, I check the obit column in the papers -- if my name isn't in there, I get up and start the day.

My friend Judy Henske and I used to hang out in the Village in the fifties...I worked with Peter and Antonia Stampfel at the Village Playhouse, Gertie's Folk City, Cafe Wha, and of course the Golden Apple across the street from the Apollo Theatre on Broadway in West Harlem. Dave van Ronk, Shep Sherbell and Chester Anderson also numbered among my close friends.
