Songwriter, Moon Martin, died May 11, 2020. Born John David Martin in 1945, he was given the nickname, "Moon", because the word "moon" would appear in so many of the lyrics of his songs. His biggest hit was "Bad Case Of Loving You". His version, which was released in 1978 on the "Shots From A Cold Nightmare" album, never charted, but Robert Palmer's version the following year, reached #14 on the Billboard Hot 100. Willy DeVille and his band, Mink DeVille, enjoyed some minor success in the UK with the Martin penned composition, "Cadillac Walk". Martin, himself, charted in 1979 on the Billboard Hot 100 with "Rolene" (#30) and "No Chance" (#50). His song, "X-Ray Vision", was a hit on MTV in 1982.
