I once heard that he was fond of writing parodies, and that he was somewhat chagrined when one of his first (and highly successful, in my opinion) attempts at serious songwriting, "The Rolling Hills of the Border", was parodied by John Roberts and Tony Barrand as "The Rolling Mills of New Jersey." Any truth to that? I'm afraid I know very little about him, but he sounds like someone I would love to have known.
