Born in Providence, Rhode Island as S. David Cohen (a name he returned to for one of his albums), David Blue was a member of the folk singer/songwriter community of Greenwich Village in the '60s and a close friend of Bob Dylan (he recounts this period of his life in Dylan's movie Renaldo & Clara). Blue made several albums for Elektra, Reprise, and Asylum in the '60s and '70s, and is best remembered for his songs "I Like to Sleep Late in the Morning" and "Wanted Man" (recorded by the Eagles). He died at age 41 of a heart attack while jogging in Greenwich Village's Washington Square Park in December 1982. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi
