Doing It While You're Here

Phil Ochs: Singer-songwriter
who died this day in 1976
'Can't be singing louder than the guns when I'm gone'

Forty years ago today marks the death of one of the greatest singer-songwriters in American history, Phil Ochs.

Ochs died tragically in 1976.

He lived 35 years as an artist, poet, civil rights and peace movement champion during an epoch of American music when absent a political message, many would ask, 'what's he-she trying to say?'

No one asked the question when Ochs sang.
