Simmons is credited with:
Dummy Up (FZ/Simmons/Brock)
Wonderful Wino (FZ/Simmons)
and of course Frank wrote/produced Lucille for Simmons to record originally.


THAT SAID:

Did Simmons write the lyrics to Cosmik Debris... I'm looking for the show now, and will post back when I find the date. But yesterday, I heard a version where Nappy fucks up the lyrics and franks says (in place of "And your old lady has just gone down") "And Jeff's lyrics have just gone down...." To my ears that is not Jeff singing, it's napoleon.... So if we look at the premiere dates of Cosmik Debris (72?) it would seem unlikely, unless Frank wrote it in 70 with Jeff? Also doesn't explain the lack of credit for it...

Anyway could be nothing, just curious.

I think you are referring to the version from Edinboro, 5/8/74 where Jeff Simmons sings the final verse and makes some ad-lib jokes about the tour.

Ah, that must be it! I'll have to listen to it again carefully. Thanks!
