Welcome to my home on the web. I'm a singer and songwriter, I used to be in Country Joe & the Fish, and I live in Berkeley, California, Planet Earth.

I am calling my forthcoming album simply 50. Watch for more news about it here.
o The show scheduled for October 1 at the Grand Opera House in Oshkosh has been cancelled.

o My new 2 CD set Time Flies By is out. Co-produced by Tim Eschliman and myself, it has 25 songs from solo to full band covering a time period of 30 years of song writing.
Preview the songs and musicians, then place your order at the Country Store.

oI was at the LBJ Presidential Library for the Vietnam War Summit. Read recaps at its website, or see video here.

o Alec Palao interviewed me at the Berkeley Historical Society on May 15th as part of its upcoming October 2017 exhibit "Soundtrack to the 60s: The Berkeley Music Scene." See the video.

o A lawsuit is claiming that Woody Guthrie's "This Land is Your Land" is in the public domain. Read about it.

o My daughter Tara Taylor McDonald has her new web site up and running. Check it out.

o The UCSF School of Nursing is planning to archive my Tribute to Florence Nightingale website so that its information will be saved for posterity. (But the site will still be available in its current location.) They are also taking over my collection of Nightingale memorabilia. Read an interview with me by the UCSF archivist.

o The latest development in the story of the badly located, badly defaced San Francisco Vietnam memorial plaque can be seen to the right. Thanks to Karin Sproul for the picture.

o In case you wonder what the fuck has happened in the past few years to get us into the mess we are in today I thought it might be nice for us at Country Joe’s Place to bring back our crisis page just the way it evolved and see how far we have come since 9/11. OMFG! (The page was up from shortly after the 9/11 attacks to the end of 2008. Some links may have died.)

o "A Ride with Matt" is a documentary film about Huntington's Disease, intended to raise awareness and to generate support and funding for research to ameliorate or altogether eradicate Huntington’s -- the disease that killed Woody Guthrie. Check it out.

o Philip Buehler has collaborated with Nora Guthrie on Woody Guthrie's Wardy Forty, chronicling Woody's years with Huntington's as seen through his letters, family snapshots, rare interviews and photos of the abandoned Greystone hospital today. Buy your copy here.

o Glass sculptor Peggy Pettigrew Stewart is casting the faces of many Woodstock musicians, including mine, to be reproduced in glass. We're going to be posting pictures of the process here as it goes along.

They've been trying to make a movie about Janis Joplin for the last 15 years. Candidates for the role have included Zooey Deschanel, Nina Arianda, Pink, and Renee Zellweger. Now it's on again under the title Get It While You Can, with Joplin played by -- the envelope please -- Amy Adams. It was supposed to start shooting late in 2015, but has apparently been delayed by legal wrangling. Meanwhile the documentary Janis: Little Girl Blue premiered at the Venice Film Festival, and will be seen on PBS's American Masters.

o My son Devin has bought Berkeley's beloved Mr. Mopps' toy store. You can visit Mr. Mopps' on the web and on Facebook.
