Phil Ochs
Phil Ochs was a folk music pioneer and along with Bob Dylan wrote some compelling anti-war songs which helped fuel the whole antiwar , anti-establishment movement of the sixties. Legend has it that once Phil showed up at Bob Dylan’s doorstep, broke, desolate and hungry for food. Bob turned him away , still mad at him for some remarks Phil made concerning some of Dylan’s tunes. On April 7th, 1976 he committed suicide by hanging himself. He was 35 years old.
