Roland the roadie and Gertrude the groupie
Live on Dutch television 1991
The song was written by Shel Silverstein (1930 – 1999)
more famous as poet, author of children’s books and Playboy cartoonist.
He wrote several Medicine Show songs but also A boy named Sue.
Silverstein was working as song and screenwriter for the film
Who Is Harry Kellerman And Why Is He Saying Those Terrible Things About Me?
and he thought the Medicine show was the perfect band for the soundtrack of that film.
