Hasek Who Is Steve Goodman? (1948-1984) (109* d) RE: Who Is Steve Goodman? 10 Dec 01

Dear Catters, If ever there was a man who started me to perform, it was Steve Goodman. As I read each of the fine letters and stories contained here and then reflected on each, tears began to stream down my eyes in remembrance of Steve Goodman. If ever there was a man who represented his city, his music , his zest for life and family and his continual support for ALL musicians of every level and HIS total dedication to his audience, Steve was it. Every night I play , I play a song to and for Steve , in honor of a mentor I will forever love and try to replicate. It is so heart warming to hear the comments from Art Thieme and Saul Brody and some of you other great performers regarding Steve. This Christmas eve, light a candle , snuggle your loved ones very close, light a fire ( if possible ) and listen to " Yellow Raincoat " and all the rest of the incredible songs , Steve penned. Thank you , Mud catters and others for honoring my teacher, Steve Goodman . Happy Holidays to each of you.


Mike Strobel
