Country Joe said he had 3 daughters and felt he wanted to celebrate women role models etc in song who deserved to be better known. He wrote one about... |
Clara Barton who invented the American Red Cross,
Flora Nightingale - a big heroine of CJMs
I think he did one about Calamity Jane too
Plus he did a song about the army combat nurse, and he made darlin Dan the Rocket Man a female space captian - his mom on the wonderful Peace on Earth album. Plus he wrote Sexist Pig on the Paris Sessions.
Country Joe is right on! - and is a voice I would love to hear as a guest on a JS track. I could hear JS jam his Starship Ride from Superstitious Blues that he picks with Jerry Garcia. Saw CJM a coupla years back in London - he was storming!
