GUEST,SirCoughsalot Who Is Steve Goodman? (1948-1984) (109* d) RE: Who Is Steve Goodman? 21 Nov 12


I know I'm sort of late to the party here, but I've listening to almost nothing but Steve Goodman lately. I always knew he was a great songwriter, but nobody ever talks about what a fine singer he was - a perfect radio voice, loud and clear on every note. A friend of mine pointed that out to me when we were listening to him playing I'll Fly Away and he whispered a verse. And his guitar playing is just phenomenal, I could just listen to him pick for hours. I've never really heard any other folksingers play like that. And he was a born performer... His live stuff is really the best stuff. I wish I could have seen him, but I hadn't even been thought of when Steve Goodman was living. He had a great sense of repertoire, too. Just everything about him, is what an entertainer should be. Thanks for all the good stories, y'all, I enjoyed this thread.
