my previous life as a filthy whore

Back in the New York days, I was a founding member of the champion pub quiz team, The Filthy Whores. (OK, maybe we weren't champions every time, but I did once serve as guest quizmaster with an excellent "Sex in Books" round.) We would play at venerable NYC institution Rocky Sullivan's, and no one was more fervent than fellow Filthy Whore John Dicker. John now lives in Denver with his lovely wife and has upped the ante by dedicating his entire life to the pub quiz pursuit. If you are visiting this site from Colorado, welcome! You are proud to call yourself Geeks Who Drink and I salute you. John has asked me to host this week's free drink question. Ready?

Write your answer on a piece of paper with your name on it and bring it to the Quizmasters table before the end of Round 7.

Name the songwriter who wrote the following tribute to Vincent Van Gogh:

You took your life
as lovers often do;
But I could have told you
Vincent
this world was never
meant for one
as beautiful as you.

My understanding is that if you are a winner, you will receive a wall-mountable giant ear. This question is good at all Geeks Who Drink locations:

Nallen's Irish Pub
The Irish Rover
McCabe's Tavern
Pearl Street Grill
CooperSmiths Pub
The Exchange Tavern

Geek on...

I wouldn't say I've dedicated my entire life to it... there's still chihuahuas, making fun of NPR, handball, chihuahuas and making fun of NPR...
