Notes on Go David

I wrote this song about David Carradine. I was beside myself with grief when I heard the news of his death. I wasn't upset because he died, I was upset because the initial reports claimed he committed suicide. The guy had a good run as an actor, and had established himself as a hero figure and a general all around bad ass: Why would someone like that commit suicide? Days later evidence pointed towards him actually being involved in extreme sexual acts of bondage and the like. I was so relieved I wrote the song.
