Dyckns Has Seen It All Twice
BILL DYCKNS has been singing & writing since 1964. DYCKNS wrote a highly acclaimed song of the events of November 22nd, 1963 he titled "Man In Texas" as a high schooler. He was a visible & vibrant supporter of the civil rights movement,performing, along with his own works, the "folk/rock' & gospel songs of the day throughout the local area. After graduation, before college, DYCKNS arrived in New York City's Greenwich Village where he made an effort for larger recognition playing the "Bitter End" & local "basket" clubs in the Bleecker Street area. Attaining great experience DYCKNS headed for college.He formed "The Wakefields & played the the midwest. Leaving college early DYCKNS headed back to New York City, enlisting in the army soon after. Being drafted was not on his agenda. Though DYCKNS did serve 1 year in Viet Nam as a combat photographer & was decorated for his service with the ACM, on his return to the States, as he said, it was a world changed. DYCKNS purchased a new guitar in 1980 but could never grasp the gift he had buried deep within after his return from the war. His First "DEMO" CD "STILL AROUND" features "THE BALLAD OF SUSETTE KELO" which has gained praise. Attorney's for the case are promoting the CD, showing the populist issue it is. Dyckns remains a songwriter of the injustices' to society but also writes songs with amazing wordsmithing & catchy melodies. DYCKNS was stunned by the inspiration relit in him but is enjoying every second of the magic.
