Dumbest idea ever.
I'll bet he partied a lot when he was at FSU. Maybe he came up with the idea for his song "wishful sinful" while partying out with the frat guys and college girls on West Tennessee Street one night back in the 60s - LOL.


His music of that era was awesome though - great in those films about the Vietnam era, protests, combat scenes, etc.: Apocalypse Now, More American Graffiti, Forrest Gump, etc. Oliver Stone had actually wanted to cast him in an early Vietnam War film but he passed away. He was out-of-control in the forensic pathological documentary I saw - particularly in Miami as one poster noted.


This has got be one of the greatest movie openings with his music from the artistic perspective. (The war was tragic though).
