Cameron wrote for a publication called Zoo World in the early ’70s. I’ve managed to track down an April, 1973 interview he did with musician/actor Johnny Nash. You might remember Johnny from his big 1972 hit “I Can See Clearly Now”.  Although his popularity in the U.S. dimmed, Nash returned to the UK charts in 1975 with his number one cover of the Little Anthony classic “Tears on My Pillow,” followed a year later by another Sam Cooke cover, “(What a) Wonderful World.” He gradually retired from performing during the coming years. “I Can See Clearly Now” has been covered many times, including versions by Jimmy Cliff and (one of my personal favorites) Neil Finn.
