Hoyt Axton has written a lot of great songs. One of them, a song that I love to play, is Snowblind Friend. The song was also covered quite nicely by Steppenwolf.
Axton’s version is loathed (that’s right – loathed) by some for being too…..light. Too light for such serious lyrics. Let’s just say I’m sure he was well aware of the distinct difference between subject and presentation.
