Last week I downloaded a torrent of a Spirit gig recorded in Chicago in May 1975 (the same tour that resulted in the Spirit of 76 album). The version of Hey Joe that they performed is rather bizarre as Randy changes the lyrics to launch a continued attack on Elton John. I searched online to see if I could uncover the source of his beef with Elton – other than the huge album sales and ticket prices mentioned in the song – and in doing so found that there is a version on YouTube. Here it is. Meanwhile I’m none the wiser about the cause of Randy’s disdain. Do any older Afterworders have any insight into this?
