Soul Brother

I like this photo of Noam Chomsky working behind the scenes on Davey and Goliath. Actually, it's not Mr. Chomsky. It's really this cat named Peter Kleinow who just up and died. I admttedly didn't know anything about Kleinow or his career until reading his recent obit on Cartoonbrew. I realize now that he was a pretty happenin' dude --for me, the complete artist.

When your legacy mixes playing guitar with The Flying Burrito Brothers AND writing the *Gumby theme song AND working with Art Clokey AND animating the Pilsbury Doughboy, that's a distinguished career one can be proud of.

*thanks to Charlie Hancock for this fine version made lightning-quick in the wee-early 80s.

I had no idea that "Sneaky Pete" did animation too.

I feel like crap.

Yow! Anyone who played on Joni Mitchell's Blue and Frank Zappa's Waka/Jawaka, AND animated Davey & Goliath, must be counted as a modern-day Renaissance person.
