I was 12 in 1981...the same year I was just discovering music...my older brother loved Harry and would blast his vinyl records from the next room. Seems like a different world looking back but the music reminds me it is good to remember

I saw him in concert in La Crosse Wisconsin the year before he died.
Small venue and I came out feeling like he was my new best friend. Ironically my husband of just 2 years was killed in a car accident shortly after, so Harry Chapin songs have lot of warm memories for me.
Never know where our stories will begina nd end,,,

I saw Harry in concert in Bridgeport, CT just before his car accident. I really miss him, there was a lot more he could have told all of us.

Wish I had used that backstage pass to all access areas. May his genius rest in peace. This and Sniper are my two very favorites.
