Comments
A protest singer (or "topical singer" in his words), Ochs was part of the Greenwich Village folk scene in the early 1960s. Ochs was very political and described himself as a "singing journalist". Ochs suffered from writing blocks in the 1970s and, whether related or not, serious mental illness by 1975. In 1976, he committed suicide.
