Battle of the Bands: Lawyers, Guns and Money

My muse for today's battle came from Stephen's battle in January.  Warning:  Don't blast this song at work, there is an S word in the lyrics.

The song comes from the late Warren Zevon. Best known for writing the song "Werewolves of London."

If I went with "the stripper" I would probably need "Lawyers, Guns and Money."

The song don't vote for this one..

Contestant One: Hank Williams Jr

I might as well go with an outlaw.

Contestant Two: The Wallflowers

The rules are pretty simple vote for Hank or the Wallflowers in the comment and I will tally up the winner in a week or so.

Thanks for visiting! Please vote!

R.I.P John Perry Barlow

John Perry Barlow has passed away at the age of 70. The former rancher, internet activist and lyricist died in his sleep today. He is probably best known for his lyrics he wrote for Grateful Dead songs.

Perhaps it is best to start with "The Music Never Stopped"..

He was famous for his writing with Bob Weir but he wrote with other members of the band. Like this beautiful song he created the lyrics for keyboardist Brent Mydland "I Will Take You Home"

Here is "Throwing Stones"

"Black Throated Wind"

His songs will live on, the battle for the internet will continue but John Perry Barlow will be missed by his family and fans.
