John R. Butler was a drone bee in the corporate PR hive many years before morphing into a full-time musician. A few years 'twixt the two careers were spent scoring TV commercials and corporate films. His greatest influence: the limerick, wherein precise cadence underscores obscene truth. His musical heroes are Roger Miller, Frank Zappa, Spike Jones, Tom Lehrer and Ed Sanders
