John Stewart, one of my favourite singer/songwriter/performers ever. He wrote many great songs, the most lucrative being Daydream Believer, a huge hit for The Monkees. He was a Kingston Trio member for a while and then a solo performer. His live double album, The Phoenix Concerts, is a joy to behold.
Remembering him today. He would have been 80. He died in 2008. I read his obituary in a newspaper on a flight to San Francisco. A sad moment.
RIP sir. You gave and still give me so much
