As great a mandolin player Hillman is I figure he must be pretty adept at guitar. Yet I've seen him several times play one the whole night and never play one lead.

I believe I saw The Byrds at a short lived Rock Palace in Boro Park, Brooklyn, on New Utreicht Avenue. Must have been late 60's, and didn't have a clue what personnel was at the time, just knew they had some hits. The Dead and Airplane played there, but it closed down in a few months. It was an odd place for a Rock Venue (I didn't get to the other shows).

michael been was a sideman in harry dean stanton's band. with the call michael fronted the band, played bass, and was the main songwriter.i do not think harry dean played live withe call, at least not very often. harry dean did play harmonica on a call recording. black rebel motorcycle club was great live, and michael was their front of house sound man. they did a fantastic show at irving plaza nyc, probably the early 2000's, and that was the last time i ever talked to michael.

As it happens, I played Emmylou's Quarter Moon in a Ten Cent Town this weekend. "One Paper Kid" is one of my favorites. Realized I don't know the first thing about Walter Martin Cowart, who wrote it. Discogs tells me Tift Merritt, among others, did the tune, too, on her Two Dollar Pistols EP, which I have. Gotta hear that tonight.
