The rock operas, UNDERGROUND, IN VIOLENCE, and THE PAUPER, were billed as, THE RICH.

Coyote's first album, TEMPTATION, released 1984 by Shaolin Records, lists the artist on the cover as, "RICHARD O'CONNOR," but on the back cover lists the band as, "THE RICH."

This song, "We Found The Love," was requested by Helen Reddy, through a publisher friend of David Shields. They said she liked it, then I moved to Los Angeles, and never got paid... Anyone have any Helen Reddy records? I need a real publisher, or someone to work for my Shaolin Music publishing company.

I know of several record companies and a perfume company in Europe that ripped me off for music and artwork... Maybe I'm a millionaire already...

This song is one of the few songs I've ever written that wasn't personally motivated. Only a few songs since 1974 were ever "forced" out of me. I just write songs to tell the story of my life or get rid of my frustration.

I've taken songwriting classes/workshops and heard these composers talk about how they write two or three songs a day and eventually they put something together that someone likes.

I go months without writing a single song, then I'll write three in one day, when I feel like it. "Feel" is a big part of it. Ironic for me, a person who tries to live by his intellect, not his feelings.
