Who the heck is Daddydewdrop? I’ve been asking myself that same question. Contrary to popular belief I am not dead, I never crossed the street at Abbey Road studios, I never met Elvis, or any other person dead or presumed dead so my math background makes the assumption that I am alive. In fact I am still writing and recording. I realize that it’s been forty years since I last topped the charts (chick a boom) and maybe my new record will return me to my old glory.I never really stopped functioning and I have over six hundred recordings of my songs.  If you really are interested you can visit my web site where I go throught the usual self hyping of my past and of course leaving out the bad stuff. www.daddydewdrop.com and as the blog develops I will touch on many of my experiences dealing with my writing, production and recording carreer. Hope you hang on for the ride.



  1. Daddy-
    Love it! Can’t wait to read more.

  2. Don’t make us wait 40 more years for the next chart topper. I’ve always been interested in the song writing process so I’ll be looking forward to what insight you give us.

  3. Hello,

    Do you know if Ray Maxwell is still alive?

    • Ray passed many years ago but his legacy lives on.

  4. I rarely comment, however i did a few searching and wound up here WHO IS THE DEW? Daddy Dewdrop Says. And I do have a few questions for you if it’s allright. Could it be only me or does it look like a few of these responses come across like written by brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are posting on other social sites, I’d like to follow everything fresh you have to post. Could you list of all of all your community sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

    • This is the only place I post anything. I know I’ve been remiss in posting but I’m finally getting back to it. My wife has had some health issues but she is on the road to recovery.

  5. Ran into this site and I found many memories flooding back. I was just a young boy when I worked with Ray and Phil Yeend at R.J. Recorders on Selma Ave. I will always remember and love your mom, Rose, who tutored me, and gave me first dog “Duke” , a wonderful German Shepherd.The days of Earl Palmer, Sharkey Hall,, Shelly Mann (And the Mannhole), Wally Heider, Sunset Sound, Revell’s Restaraunt ……….. Amazing days, how the industry has changed. Wishing you all the best, Steve.
