Music Monday

I have carried a ticket stub in my wallet since May 20, 1978. I saw Harry at the Macauley on that night, on stage and then after the show when he stood giving autographs for hours to benefit his work for hunger relief. The ticket was a whopping $7.50 with half of that going to his charitable works. No other concert, not even Lyle!, has ever been more wonderful than that concert. And when Harry dropped down and sat on the edge of the stage and talked to us about hunger issues in America, it was a true awakening for me. By the end of the show he had the whole crowd on their feet with our arms around each other singing, "All my life's a circle".
Most folks can think of where they were and how they felt when they heard Elvis had died. For me, I remember the moment I heard that Harry had been killed. It still makes me sad.

I've learned all kinds of interesting things about you by reading your blog. Whenever I hear Cat's In The Cradle, I'm reminded of how true those words can be and how the young fathers of today do a much better job of making time to be there for their children.
