Back about '85 or '86, a group took Eric Clapton's song "Cocaine," rewrote the lyrics, and called it "Get Saved." Anyone remember it? I think the group's name was Bobby Dee and the Scam. Does anyone happen to know if any
Oh, yeah. That was JJ Cale's "Cocaine." Clapton just made it popular.
I remember Bobby Dee, real name, Bob DeMoss. He was a columnist for Expression Christian Newspaper here in Pgh and then he worked for awhile
with Focus on the Family as their Youth Culture Specialist or somesuch.
Last I heard, he was married and living in Nashville, writing books, I believe. We have mutual friends. I'll ask.
copy of the song exists, or if the group put out any other music? The old WCIE radio station in Lakeland, FL used to play the song quite a bit (on Friday nights and Saturday afternoons) back then.
I'd be interested in purchasing any recordings any of you might know of.
IIRC, that was just a single. I'll ask about that, too.
