Songwriter P.F. Sloan died last night of pancreatic cancer. He wrote many songs, the best-known of which was the Barry McGuire hit "Eve of Destruction."

Back when, Cassell Webb recorded a lovely cover of Jimmy Webb's tribute to the man. Webb's original is also on Youtube.

P.F. Sloan.

Nice songwriter he is.. At least he knows how to appeal to the market..

Barry McGuire who sang Eve of Destruction is also a member of the New Christy Minstrels, a folk group led by Randy Sparks. At one recent NCM concert, Randy said "I don't like this song" before Eve of Destruction.. But he sang with Barry on the song anyway.. The entire group sang it with Barry and it was wonderful memories indeed
