About D. Blue

Born in Providence, Rhode Island as S. David Cohen (a name he returned to for one of his albums), David Blue was a member of the folk singer/songwriter community of Greenwich Village in the '60s and a close friend of Bob Dylan (he recounts this period of his life in Dylan's movie Renaldo & Clara). Blue made several albums for Elektra, Reprise, and Asylum in the '60s and '70s, and is best remembered for his songs I Like to Sleep Late in the Morning and Wanted Man (recorded by the Eagles). He died at age 41 of a heart attack while jogging in Greenwich Village's Washington Square Park in December 1982. ~ William Ruhlmann
