His tunes were covered by the Youngbloods and the Holy Modal Rounders (the latter's Peter Stampfel roped him in for 1976's landmark Have Moicy!); more recently, he's been exalted by Cat Power and Davendra Banhart. Tara Jane O'Neil is a veteran of key indie acts Rodan, Retsin, the Sonora Pine, and Naysayer. With Metal Mountains.
