Country-Rock Hall Of Fame – John Stewart

John Stewart found fame as a member of the Kingston Trio before going solo in the late 1960s to spearhead the Country-Rock movement. He is best known as a songwriter having penned Daydream Believer for the Monkees. He was a major influence on Lindsay Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac. In any Country-Rock Hall of Fame he would be a founding member. He was a huge favorite in Phoenix, Arizona in the 1970s due to Progressive Rock KDKB FM when I was a teenager. His music seemed perfect for the desert, a soundtrack for our lives. Here’s a wonderful clip from Hugh Hefner’s bizarre Playboy After Dark series.
