|Comments, Highlights||The thing that really made me want to play Rock & Roll was something that I witnessed as a kid. In Belvedere Homes in West Palm Beach, every month they would block off the street with cars and barriers, and bands would set up, in the street, and the teenagers would have a “Street Dance”. This was in 61-62. I was 7, and I’ve been lookin’ for that energy ever since!|
