Thread Name: Whatever happened to Matt McGinn?
Subject: RE: Whatever happened to Matt McGinn?
I once heard that Matt was very pleased with the lovely "Rolling Hills of the Border" as his first "serious" song, and then was mildly chagrined when it was quickly parodied by John Roberts and Tony Barrand as "The Rolling Mills of New Jersey." As a former New Jersey resident, and a sometime writer of parodies and humorous songs, as well as serious ones, this story struck a chord with me. Can anyone attest to its veracity?
