He wrote a number of hits for himself and others, In The Ghetto by Elvis and Baby Don't Get Hooked On Me by himself probably the two biggest.

Here's the late Bobby Blue Bland doing In The Ghetto which is my fave cover of this song.

RIP. He had a pretty good run. I hope he didn't have to give up the publishing to Col. Tom for "In the Ghetto"!

"Baby Don't Get Hooked On Me" is a beautiful song. Tender, sensual, and profoundly sad.



RIP, Mac.

As a young teen in the early seventies, variety shows were all the rage.
Mac's was entertaining, as was Helen Reddy's. Both were all over AM radio.

RIP

The musical riff in this one reminds me of a certain band ...

His "Stop and Smell The Roses" is a great song - good advice for us all.
