You, who are on the oats…
Blog Guy, I know you’re an authority on 1960s music. What’s David Crosby up to these days? I thought I saw him advertising oatmeal on television!
You’re thinking of Wilford Brimley, the white-haired actor in those ads.
He’s not Amish, he’s Quaker, or else they would be Amish Oats.
Yes, but no Quaker could play the 12-string guitar like Brimley could.
You mean like Crosby, which brings us back to your original question. The musician kind of dropped out of sight, and there are rumors that he moved to Switzerland and ran for political office under the assumed name of Luc Recordon. Clearly that clever name, “record-on,” was a tease to his many fans.
Switzerland? Wow! Cold country like that, I bet he goes through a lot of oatmeal! What was this Recordon guy’s election campaign slogan?
His bumper stickers said, “Teach your children well…”
