    He is a one hit wonder.
    He once worked as a security guard for Graceland, Elvis Presley's mansion.
    He helped Bob Dylan's recording of the album 'Blonde On Blonde' - by emptying ashtrays (he was studio janitor at the time).
    The first group he joined was titled 'Mirt Mirly and the Rhythm Steppers.'
    He allowed 'I Can Help' to be used in TV commercials for Texico and Blockbuster.
    He named his daughters Planet and Sierra.
    His mother died when he was just 13.
    He plays guitar, bass, keyboards and drums.
    In the '60s, he gave his janitor's job at Columbia records to fellow bandmate Kris Kristofferson.
    He wrote songs recorded by Mel Tillis, Conway Twitty and Waylon Jennings.
    'I Can Help' reached #1 in 1974 on Billboard's Singles pop and country charts and sold over 5 million copies.
    The clapping and cheering heard at the end of the song was spontaneous because his band got through the song after many takes, due to his dog playfully nipping at the musicians during the session.
