Stagger Lee Saturdays - Dave Van Ronk

Dave Van Ronk was one of Bob Dylan's biggest influences, and even has a street named after him in Greenwich Village. He couldn't drive, and didn't like to fly, and wouldn't touch a computer, but he loved science fiction. Before he died in 2002, he had almost completed an autobiography which looks incredibly entertaining (I've just added it to my Amazon wishlist).

This is yet another cover of Furry Lewis' take on Stag, with the "when you lose your money" moral.

OK, i was gone on my honeymoon, so i tried to let it slide when you disappeared for a while.

Now that i'm back, where have you gone?

Sorry. I had a massive party to organize and decorate for. I'd planned on a matching post here, but that didn't happen. And also nothing else happened here either.

Congratulations! Go anyplace good?

Now off to download some WP.

Cool. I love San Francisco. My friend The Chromium Swan lives there, and I've made two visits. (Still haven't ridden on a cable car or been to Alcatraz -- I'm a weird tourist.)
