I first photographed The Babys in 1977. The Aquarian Weekly - the region's music publication - did a story on them, which I've attempted to reproduce here (without the front page lead-in). The editor, Mike Greenblatt, who I've worked with on dozens of publications, flew out to  Cleveland for band access. Two of the pictures were taken by Janet Macoska - the queen of Cleveland RnR photography (she shoots for the RnR Hall of Fame now) and I took the third one of guitarist Mike Corby at the Palladium in NYC in October 1977.

The caption in the upper right picture is rife with errors: Mike Corby isn't the organist, Wally's last name is Stocker and John Waite is not the bassist. I don't even see the  bassist in the picture...............maybe Greenblatt filled in for him that night (yeah, right).

These two half-pages wouldn't stitch together, but maybe someone would like to print them out full-size and give them to John - something for him to read on the way to his next stop (Reno, NV on the 10th).

I hope he's flying.

Just noticed...........there's a 1979 Babys shot from the Bottom Line on my site (

Art Stapleton has been a good football writer for The Record for a long time. After the ownership changed, he appears to have been required to use this idiotic "5 things" in almost every one of his stories and it's REALLY annoying. I know this probably isn't his idea because it's all over the must be a USA Today thing.

Speaking of "things", here are 16 sequential ones from Mr. Stapleton in the last 6 weeks (12 in just the last 4 weeks). The last one is from today and it's somewhat misleading.

Over the past 2 months, The Record - especially the sports section - has gotten much better at spelling words correctly and cleaning up the myriad mistakes they CONSTANTLY made, though they are far from perfect (and they're still overdoing that annoying "5" thing I wrote about in the previous post).

After a few hiccups over the last couple of months, they're starting to slip again. Along with those hiccups, here are some of the other head-scratchers, ending with two stunning screwups this week:

that's going to be an "expansion" larger than the HUMC campus in Hackensack. I wonder if their days of building in Hackensack are winding down ?  I notice that Hackensack Roofing has finally decided to put their land up for sale. Probably they are thinking the same think I am.
