Break Down, Into Tears

It was the Fall of 1978, freshman year at college when Jack Sonntag brought over the  “Alive on Arrival” album and I heard my first, Steve Forbert song.  It has been a music love affair ever since.  I’ve seen him live dozens of times and I want to see him one more time before he retires.

That sure was a treat for me.

The song below is from that debut album and it is the first Forbert song of many that I learned to play on the guitar.

Back in 2014, I took Elissa with me to see Steve in Charlotte, NC and I had the opportunity to talk with him for quite a while, telling him how much I’ve enjoyed his music over the years.

I have lots of “favorite” Forbert songs, but “Tonight” will always be special. I feel a little melancholy tonight and thought of this tune,


About Ray V.

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.
