Loudermilk was no slouch as an artist in his own right, mind: https://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dpopular&field-keywords=JOHN+D.+LOUDERMILK

Unsurprisingly I only really know of him because he penned a couple of numbers for Karen Carpenter's ill-fated solo album.

"Ill fated" in the past. To be fair to Rod Temperton he lived long enough to see it claimed as a misunderstood masterpiece. She died thinking it a total failure. You'll find people now willing to claim it alongside Nick Drake albums as an example of how the world got it wrong first time around.

No, he didn't.

Why am I seeing multiple news sources then?

 

 

He's dead alright. I posted notice of that in Dead Pop Stars.

 

He recorded the first version, but he didn't write Green Door. Look it up.

Ah. I saw the word singer songwriter and thought he wrote the song. Should look a bit more in depth sometimes

What a rotten way to pay back my faith in his ability to see 2018...

 

(Or not to reach the Drop 40, to be more accurate...)

 

EDIT - On the bright side, I appear to have added him to my Hartlepool, Hares, DbN and Alt Obits teams.
