Souther on Witchy

I heard from J.D. Souther, who is known to some as the fifth-Beatle of the Eagles -- he's credited with co-writing "The Best of My Love," "New Kid in Town" and other pieces of the mass soundtracks of our lives. The musician had a couple of corrections for Chicken Corner, in particular that Patti Davis, daughter of the late President Ronald Reagan, didn't participate in the creation of "Witchy Woman." Well, I heard it from a reliable source, but reliable sources can trump reliable sources and Souther says:

Nice piece [on the Eagles in Echo Park], but. Patti Davis, a swell girl and friend, did not write any of,"Witchy Woman" and it was, in fact, written about someone else. Also, we were never down-and-out, just starting off and very happy to be doing so. Enjoyed the mention and still love the neighbourhood. JD

Chicken Corner is glad to hear that low-rent didn't mean unhappy. I feel the same way about some of the less-expensive homes of my youth. Strike down and out from my list of terms to throw around carelessly!
