I was asked if DeeBee was inspired by D B

Yes & No:  my name IS David Bernard Cooper

If you do the math for my age you see that I was 20 in 1968

Never a better time to be 20

I was also writing poetry & by 70 was involved in the Music Scene

In 71 I was a Full Time Roadie  living in London: lots of girls

2 in particular:  1 from the West Country & back there for the summer, the other sent to Malta by her mum to get her out of my clutches

So, I wrote a poem about Hitch Hiking to the West Country

Revisited the idea a week or so later & wrote about hijacking a plane to Malta


About 5 years later I came across a newspaper article about D B COOPER

(google him)

seems this guy had hijacked a plane in USA

Kept the clipping

By the early 90's I had moved to Belgium & had a number of Expos

One as one of the very few male contributors to a big Feminist Event called GYNAIKA in 96

Was still in the Music Business, tho now as a Booking Agent

Was talking to an American Agent (she repped Henry Rollins & Townes Van Zandt)

She said 'pity your not a woman, cos I could get you hung in some Lesbian Bars in NYC'

So I came up with DeeBee Cooper as an androgynous version of my name


a few years back I was researching something & discovered


(31-8-71 For Cheryl in Westward Ho:  9-9-71 For Anna C 5)

He jumped 24-11-71…
