Default Re: Melbourne, FL: Too Many Clues in this Room

Richard Harison (former Road Manager and Live Sound Engineer for Gordon) proferred this:

You asked me about "Too Many Clues," and I proffered a possible connection between
the writing and Nixon/Watergate -- where all the "clues" were eventually connected, revealing the "whole is greater than the sum of its parts" totality of the situation.
(The timing is right. Song recorded Dec. 1975 & obviously written before that. Nixon resigned August 1974.)
As I have said before--I have never asked Gordon about it.

I think the Trump White House and all the shenanigans going on there is a distinct parallel --
thus one reason why GL might have hauled this one out of the vault.
Also-- the concert was only days after the Parkland mass shooting.
No coincidence here!

(Washington Post reporters Woodward & Bernstein were told in 1974 by informer Deep Throat to "Follow the Money."
Ironically they are now once again working together and are telling CNN the same thing: "Follow the Money!"
Déjà Vu all over again.)

The very same sentiment was expressed by Hercule Poirot in 1974's "Murder on the Orient Express," when Poirot muses:
"Has it ever occurred to you that there are too many clues in this room?"
Each clue pointed to an individual--so there were too many clues. Thus the only solution to the case was that they were all
in on it.

————All The Best,
Richard
