to Victor Zeuthen...Who is that?
Sherry Fraser has a lot to do with John. John
dated Sherry between nineth grade and freshman year in college and grew
very fond of her. She is a skilled
musician and good friend. Her influences run deep in the Marcy Playground
music. The duo wrote several songs together including "Ancient Walls
of Flowers". On ZogBogBean, Sherry sung many parts and even
has several of her own compositions and interludes on it. She did
the artwork for the front cover and back cover. The art on
the back of the album entitled "Freak Face" She did all other photography
with the exception of the "Marcy Street Sign" which John took in
Aberdeen WA. See the "History" page to learn more.

drums on the album, the liner notes have someone else listed?
Victor Zeuthen was Dylans father. He passed away as
work on this album was in progress. The date was January 20, 1995.
Question 4: Who is married and
What we know as the Marcy Playground album had originally
been a project of John and a good friend named Jared Kotler. The
two had been friends since high school, with Jared even being best man
at John's wedding. As the recording progressed, it was decided that
other individuals be brought in to play on the album. Dylan
was brought in to fill the bass position. Jared continued filling
the drum spot. It was not until the recording had ended that Dan
was added to the line-up on drums due to conflicts between all involved.
John has a lovely wife named Kristen and an infant
son , Keegan ("Keegan's Christmas" is named after him) Dan is "free
as a bird" according to Dylan. And Dylan just recently got engaged
after a four year courtship.
