And don't forget the Dead Kennedys single recorded when White was released, a cover of Bobby Fuller's "I Fought the Law" ("and *I* Won")

Steve Derby

What sort of a defense is it that blames one's diet? Next time my wife falls out with me should I hide her chocolate bars?

This involved a gay man in San Francisco. They mentioned hohos and dingdongs, and could have said a few things about twinkies.

Scott West

The tone of this post is all wrong. Dan White was depressed because he was a bigot upset about gays being in SF and specifically, SF government. No sympathy for White. Failure to convict on the charge of murder is a tremendous injustice.
The Times of Harvey Milk is a good documentary on the subject.

Steve Zarate

These are interesting songs, and I'm glad to have discovered them. Where can one learn more about Art Peterson & Lenny Anderson? I'm Steve Zarate, a singer-songwriter based in Athens, Ohio. After seeing "The Times Of Harvey Milk" in 1984 and reading Randy Shilts' "The Mayor Of Castro Street" in 1990, I wrote a song called "The Ballad Of Harvey Milk" in January 1991. A seven-minute ballad telling Harvey's story & celebrating his spirit, it's on my debut CD, "Homecoming" (1996), & can be heard at www.myspace.com/stevezarate, where a blog entry also presents the song's lyrics and some songwriter's comments. I hope you like it.

Lenny Anderson

I wrote and recorded The Ballad of Dan White noted above. Don't know where Art is these days.
I was working at Union Offset, a small printing company in SF at the time...and playing and writing songs. I printed the program for Harvey Milk's memorial; my tears were on some of the copies.

Michael Cogan

Hi Lenny! Haven't seen you for a long time. Hope all is well. I do run across Art every once in a while, although not recently. I see his band, The Polka Cowboys, still playing around. For the rest of you, I recorded this record and issued it on my label, Bay Records. I've been asked who the personnel are on it. I can't find the original notes at present, but I'll do the best I can from memory: Besides Art and Lenny, I think there was Doug Corrigan on drums, Gary Potterton on guitar and Bill Amatneek on bass.

Michael Cogan

I should update this a bit. Now that I think about it, that may be Gary Potterton on bass and also on dobro. He may also have added some pedal steel licks to The Ballad of Dan White. I'm not sure of the fiddle player. It may be Darol Anger.
