A regular at the Great Southeast Music Hall in the 70s. Interesting show.

Well crap. Not an absolute favorite, but I always enjoyed it when something of his/theirs came around on the rotation.

I mean, a lot of one-hit wonders (one-bowl wonders?) die every year, not sure why one who hasn't been heard from in 50 years rates a front page on Fark. Slow not-news day?

He was a sincerely nice guy with a great sense of humor.

CSB Time... I did all the promo art for a couple of his shows, so he made sure that I was well compensated, took me to dinner with the band, and insisted that I hang out backstage with them. A very loud, very drunk woman in leopard print tights and matching top made her way backstage and was driving everyone nuts. She kept yelling about how badly she wanted to meet "Captain Cody" while spilling drinks and being a general pain in the ass. He, being the kind of guy he was, invited her over to where we were sitting and introduced me as "The Colonel", the sound guy as "The Admiral", and the guitar player from an opening act as "The Grand Poobah"... She kept yelling "I'm not leaving until the Captain signs my ass!" while dropping her tights and bending all the way over, putting her ass directly in his face, as we were seated on a couch. He obliged... writing "CAPTAIN CODY WAS HERE" on her bare ass, with a long meandering arrow that ended pretty much in her butthole. She yelped and stood up so fast, that the Sharpie was stuck firmly between her cheeks. She pulled her tights up quickly and got hustled out by security, Sharpie still in place. He didn't miss a beat, as though that happens all the time, and we went back to talking about computers.

R.I.P. "Captain"
