Danny O’Keefe Biography (Wikipedia)

Danny O'Keefe (born 1943, Spokane, Washington, United States) is an American singer-songwriter. O'Keefe's musical career has spanned four decades from his early days playing in the Minnesota coffee houses to his present station in the Seattle area. He is still active both in the recording studio and on stage.

In 1968 O'Keefe was a member of a four-man heavy psychedelic rock band named Calliope. The group recorded one album, Steamed, for Buddah Records before disbanding.

O'Keefe is best known for his only hit single "Good Time Charlie's Got the Blues", which was released in September 1972, and reached number 9 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart, and for "The Road", covered by Jackson Browne on Running on Empty. "Good Time Charlie's Got the Blues" stayed on the Billboard chart for 14 weeks and sold a million copies. The gramophone record's sales culminated in a gold disc issued by the R.I.A.A. in June 1973.

O'Keefe's unique lyrical style and haunting melodies earned him a reputation as an important songwriter of his genre. With Bob Dylan he co-wrote the environmental movement anthem, "Well Well Well".
