Who was Clayton Delaney and how did he die?

I know he was a local musician from around Olive Hill, Kentucky and died around the age of 20. It took him a couple weeks to die, and he took religion right before he died.

Other than that, he is about as famous as D.B. Cooper is infamous due to Tom T. Hall.

Also, I think Clayton Delaney was a stage name.

Here is info about the song

Quote:
Was the character in "The Year That Clayton Delaney Died" based on someone named Floyd Carter? I've read varying accounts on that.

No, his name was Lonnie Easterly. I used to travel and look for songs. That was my alias, Floyd Carter. If I was out looking for songs and they'd say, "Aren't you Tom T. Hall?" I'd say, "No, I'm Floyd Carter." I never told many people that. I didn't have to use it a lot. I'd get in my car and drive through small town America and stop off at little cafes and pool halls, to look and listen. I got a lot of songs that way. There toward the end, it got to where people would recognize me.

But Lonnie Easterly was his name. The way I got the name Clayton Delaney, it's a good story. The hill he lived on was called Clayton Hill, and the people who lived next door to him were the Delaneys. So I didn't want to move too much geography around and lose the feel of what I was writing about. So when I changed his name, I changed it to a hill and a neighbor. I kept everything on that hill, there in his neighborhood, to keep from losing that reality.

I think he was around 20 years old, that is why I am curious.

So taking religion right before he died must not have worked.

But hypothetically, could he outpick Curtis Loew?

That's racist because they don't have "the black man's blues" in Olive Hill Ky.

Funny your talking about my home town. I was just listening to our local radio station yesterday and they were talking to Tom T. and the Grasscal's. Tom recorded that song with the Grasscal's on their new CD. Sorry I don't have any more info on the charater. I joined the conversation about half way through.

That radio show is what sparked my interest.
I like the Grascal's version better than any of the others.

I have often thought about you when I drive past on I-64 or every time I hear of Olive Hill on the Bluegrass Channel. You live in the mecca of bluegrass.
