photos - kk in chicago - later on
of course, the history of my connection to Chicago does not end in
1977. i retained many friends and fans with whom i stayed in
touch and often returned to visit and sometimes, to perform. i
include here some 'random' selections which bring that history up
to the present.
Chicago is a great American city - and . . . a toddlin' town.
Chicago seen here
looking east across lake Michigan beyond it. during my time
there i shared its environs wtih some womderful people, some of whom i
got to know personally - and some - who i didn't. :)
maybe that's because
i didn't arrive till '76.
here's a guy i did meet - Jimmy Johnson, bartender at the Earl of Old Town. a good guy . .
is he a Shriner??
another ;good guy'. one of the only 'folk singers' who visited
the Chicago scene . . who i actually LIKED. :)) Mr
unfortunately he died, trying to save some other guy from drowning.
and then there are the close friends who loved and supported me and my
creative project. because of my carelessness about taking
some of their faces won't appear here. instead i have the pictures
they took of me. whatever . . . me - in Evan
Gladstone's garden, 2014.
and outside Oliver Kramer's apartment
and me . . on Regina's porch in my best bathrobe
friend, Regina Henley's house in 2002 and and with Marco,
Regina's housemate. i'm in shock here, but i don't know why. :))
here's a snap taken by my buddy, Oliver Kramer in 2011.
i'm playing 'Your Cheatin' Heart' in his living room.
thoughtful, huh? and here are two with a face. my FIRST Chicago fan.
she was just a child when i met her at the Earl. barely legal.
i was ashamed to take advantage of her innocent youth.
Debbie Klare Murray.
this, circa 2010. as you can see, she's all grown up now,
the married mother of 3 big children, complete with gray hair. she
she still loves me though. bless your heart, Deb.
more snaps from Regina's kitchen. a tribute to Capone . . and . .
let's finish this rambling incoherency with a few more out takes from my 2014 gala concert. as follows.
Elvis has left the building no kidding . . . .
