JWB Lyr Req: Hexagon Zombies (Rick Spencer) (23) RE: Lyr Req: Hexagon Zombie 15 Jan 09


Ahh, the folk process. Rick did author this gem, lyrics and tune. I remember him calling me from a rest stop on the New Jersey turnpike to read me the lyrics, having just created them on a drive south.

Then, he invited me to join him on stage at Mystic for the premier. I got to stand next to him with my squeezebox, acting the zombie part. The audience seemed to enjoy the presentation.

When he got around to recording the song Rick didn't include me. I've never understood why he made the decision to arrange it for the guitar: must have been a moment of temporary sanity on his part.

I haven't gotten around to recording it myself, though it's top of the list of tracks to include when I do another CD. I have gotten a lot of mileage out of the song, though, and am forever grateful to Rick for putting such a brilliant piece of art together.

And that's the truth...

Jerry
