DR. HOOK And The Medicine Show's Songwriter SHEL SILVERSTEIN

dpstyles™ CC
Last night,...the song.. 'Cover of the Rolling Stone' see link below. kept playing over and over in my head. Then, when I finally fell asleep, I started to dream about the song....So, thought I'd check it out, 'cause I always enjoyed DR. HOOK   [ oh...check out music HERE, thanks YOUTUBE ] way back when. after I'd heard their song 'Silvia's Mother'  fromOldies08070.
I found out that the Dr. Hook's hit 'Cover of the Rolling Stone' link below. was written by SHEL SILVERSTEIN, and HERE or HERE  not by a member of the band. AND, Silverstein had written several of the band's other tunes. He was also, a country songwriter... But, I'd heard only his name before as a author of children's books selling over 20 million copies and translated into 30 languages. .
There was a lot more to him than a songwriter or children's book author. He had several adult interests as well, and was a cartoonist for PLAYBOY MAGAZINE. Had many interests in film and the theater. After his death in 1999, he was put in NASHVILLE SONGWRITERS HALL OF FAME.  He also, won a Grammy for 'A Boy Named Sue', by Johnny Cash, and was nominated for an Oscar and Golden Globe for his song 'I'm Checking Out', from the film, 'Postcards From The Edge'. He didn't waste a minute in his 68 years of life, was so creative and productive, adding so much to all of the arts.... music, books, film and theater...thank you. Jan
