A wrongfully overlooked singer/songwriter of the 1960s-1980s. His songs always told stories making him one of the best story tellers of all time. He gave over half of the money he'd make to charities living by the philosophy "I play one night for myself and one night for the other guy." He started an organization called World Hunger Year to help stop people from starving. He didn't have a particularly great singing voice but the songs he sang more than made up for it.
Now if a man tried to take his time on Earth and prove before he died what one man's life could be worth well I wonder what would happen to this world. -- Harry Chapin

Popular, but sometimes forgotten singer in the 70's. Wrote several good songs including:
Taxi, Cat's in the Cradle, Danceband on the titantic, W*O*L*D* 30,000 Pounds of Banas, ...etc. Died nine years into his career when his car was hit in New York. Gave lots of money to charities.
