New York singer-songwriter Harry Chapin earned a reputation as a tireless performer and a remarkably generous man who toured the country constantly, and gave an unheard-of percentage of his performance earnings to charity. Chapin's most memorable tunes, including million-sellers like "Taxi" and "Cats in the Cradle," were story songs delivered in a soulful rasp, in which he sang of missed opportunities and dreams that don't come true. Although critics found his music pretentious or sentimental, Chapin was a huge success in the '70s. When he lost his life in a 1981 traffic accident, the outpouring of emotion from around the world testified to just how much the man and his music were revered.
