Correct, John! Squeezing Out Sparks was GP's first album not produced by Nick. For this one, the label brought in Jack Nitzsche. (Also, Martin Belmont was never in Brinsley Schwarz, though he did play with fellow pub-rockers Ducks Deluxe.)

He wasn't an official 'academic scholar' that I know of but he recited the entire Bible on tape/record and he produced, narrated, and appeared in his own movie about the life of Christ set on location in Israel so in my book that is a (as well as promoting gospel music in the mainstream with the Carter Family like no other besides Elvis P)
PS: On second thought, I seem to recall JC completing a correspondance training course in biblical history!

Yep, I've never read Man in White or seen the movie; so I need to!
Tanya Tucker was one of the youngest stars ever in music when she hit the upper reaches of the US country charts with 'Delta Dawn' in 1972 at the age of 13. She would eventually rack up 40 US Top 10 Country Hits and numerous other hits making her one of the biggest female country stars ever (or stars period). Still, one of the most amazing things she did was managing to have relationships with these widely differing gentlemen; Andy Gibb, Merle Haggard, Don Johnson, and Glen Campbell.
Fact or Fiction ?

I don't believe Shooter was even alive in 75', so I'll say
(he did play his dad in Walk the Line in the 00s though)
PS: I've liked Shooter's music when I've heard it on CMT over the years but radio apparently doesn't play it (I never listen to 'radio' per se). The last thing I heard was his cover of Dire Straits 'Walk of Life'. I guess he's an alternative country rocker and that's cool to me!

After the Beatles invaded America, their main competition in the early stages of the British Invasion was considered to be the Dave Clark Five. Anecdotal evidence of this is highlighted by the fact that the DC5 appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show more than any other British Invasion band besides the Beatles.
Fact or Fiction ?
