On the cover of the Rolling Stone. Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show. I don't know tons about this band - but we've all head their hit song on some juke box somewhere. For starters - we have to agree that their second album has the All-time best title ever in rock and roll history for a band's second album. Theirs is aptly named Sloppy Seconds. But I looked to see on the back cover of this record it states, "All songs written by Shel Silverstein." Not a few, not one - ALL!. Including their hit - On the Cover of the Rolling Stone. Shel is Sheldon Allan "Shel" Silverstein (born September 25, 1930 – May 10, 1999), was a cool guy too, apparently. My father-in-law knows Shel's son or nephew and I met that guy too at a Cubs game a few years ago. Shel also wrote many children's books. But you sure have heard the most notable song Shel wrote - Johnny Cash's monster smash hit - A Boy Named Sue.
