Alexander King

0 Conversations

Without the lyricists guidance, since he is the only B.C. personage mentioned (JC died in AD, and the song starts with him), I think it more likely he was refering to another artistic type, most likely the author, illustrator, and TV personality Alexander King. (He had an American TV show, I think in the '60s, with his wife Marge.)

Here is some info on his legacy, but not much on his life.
