John Stewart, R.I.P.

Calm down, people: John, not Jon. John Stewart was in the seminal college folk singer group The Kingston Trio,  and went on as a songwriter after the demise of said group. You may have heard “Daydream Believer” by Smash Mouth. Well, the Monkees beat them to it by some 30 years and made the better version. Suck on that, Smash Mouth. Anyway, Stewart wrote that song, and probably other songs too. Now he’s gone, but Smash Mouth is still here. As are The Monkees, but they apparently hate one another.
