Dead 30 years ago today and he was 30 years old when he passed. How's that for some crazy math. I’ll be breaking out Clarkie’s catalog at concert volume today.
I remember the exact moment I heard the news. I was flipping through the radio while stopped at a red light. The local rock station KBPI was breaking out "Photograph" so of course I turned it up. Then the DJ said, "In case you haven't heard the terrible news..." My heart sunk and I immediately drove to my friend Jeff's house to tell him the news. (This was pre-cell phone, folks.). He opened the door and I could tell by the look on his face that he already knew. We turned on MTV to see Kurt Loder's special report and that's when it began to sink in.
Thankful for the legacy of great music Steve left behind.
