Both Snipe and Mallard are friends and collaborators of Will's. They're all part of the open mic/EATV7 scene. Mallard hosts the "Minstrels On The Block" tv show that Will has been a guest on.

This is a Johnny Cash song, though. Cash and Dylan wrote it together or Dylan wrote it for Cash (depending on whether or not you ask a huge Dylan fan or Cash fan), but either way... it was a Johnny Cash song. He debuted it and was the first performer of the song.

OFF instead of OF. Obvious typo. Legitimate question. Why do you think they want a connection with you?
Well, my silly, anonymous friend, Brian Mallard and Jack Snipe are the two lead guitar players in my Shadowville All-Stars, as well as co-writes of many of the songs.

Hope that clears up your obvious confusion.

There are a lot of interesting stories out there about "Wanted Man", some say that Johnny Cash wrote the song with Dylan when they used to hang out together in 1969 and years around that time, when they not only performed and wrote together.

But the song is listed as written and copyrighted by Dylan.

And some, like you are anonymous trolls who seem to have had your feelings hurt at some time in the past... heh.

That song does not qualify as music
Blame Dylan then, I reckon, since he wrote it.

Their version is terrible. I blame you for posting a link to that not up to par so called music. It seems everything you are affilated with does not meet the criteria for AVERAGE. Not good music at all. Not up to par.
Well, thanks for giving your opinion.

Anyone who wants to listen for themselves rather than your obviously biased and jealous opinion, the link is provided:

Looks like you're doing okay so far, my anonymous friend. Adter all, you haven't lied, libeled anyone, or used any "hate speech" yet.

Yes, here's more details on "Wanted Man", of great interest:

With "Wanted Man" on my mind, I went looking and found this.

So Johnny Cash claims an uncredited collanoration on this one.
