The House Is Empty, My Folks Are Gone.

I was in 8th grade math class, Warren Middle School,  and I still can see him walking into the room and the shirt he was wearing.

Bob Baro and his “Smokin” shirt. Bob was ahead of his age when it came to music and he unknowingly introduced me to bands such as Slade, Mott The Hoople, MC5 and of course, Humble Pie.

The shirt and album were my introduction to the band and the genesis of my appreciation for their music. A few issues of CREEM Magazine and the “Fillmore”, double-live album and I was hooked.

For whatever reason, I was thinking of the late, great Steve Marriott this morning. Steve had a stage presence like no other.

Back from the days of great concerts. Memories for those of us who experienced them and a reminder to the kids who missed out on some great times.

Did any of you ever see Humble Pie Live?

Originally from the Smokin’ album . . .

Living between Aiken & Nashville, TN, USA, I like to share what I am looking at, thinking about or listening to. I refer to this as the view out my window. Thanks for stopping by.
