New Benjy Ferree song

so I'm a fan of Benjy Ferree, a DC musician. His latest album, Come Back To The Five And Dime, Bobby Dee Bobby Dee, is about Bobby Driscoll, a child actor who won an Oscar and was the voice of Peter Pan in the Disney cartoon movie. He was fired soon after for getting acne and growing older, and then developed a drug problem, dying alone at age 31. When found, the police thought he was a homeless person, and he was buried in an unmarked mass grave on New York's Hart Island. Pretty sad and crazy story.

One of the songs is out on the internet, and it's pretty good:

Fear - Benjy Ferree

The album comes out February 9, 2009. Here's his Myspace page.
