Did you check out the cartoon I posted on Saturday morning? “Dock Ellis and the LSD No-No”?
I didn’t mention that I know the journalist who conducted that interview with the former Pirate pitcher. He’s on my blogroll, in fact. Cheers, Donnell Alexander, for having a YouTube hit on your hands.
Turns out the tale of Dock Ellis throwing a no-hitter while tripping on acid is already deep in American folklore. Below are five different songs about it!
Click the titles and stream the music on my Vox blog. Hope you enjoy these tracks as much as I do.
1. “Dock Ellis” – Zachariah & the Lobos Riders
2. “Dock Ellis’ No-No” – Chuck Brodsky
3. “America’s Favorite Pastime” – Todd Snider
4. “Dock Ellis” – Marvin’s Garden
5. “Dock Ellis” – SF Seals
