CHICAGO EDDIE HAS SOME STORIES FOR YOU>>>



Was watching this character's antics from afar out in Rockaway earlier today and thinking to myself "man, someone needs to film this guy, he's a walking reality show..." Then our paths collided and I was roped into receiving an hour-plus monologue from him with his face thrust as close as possible to mine --- which made dodging the huge chunks of flying spit that much harder... He covered lots of ground -- from his varied careers in military intelligence, drug smuggling, and 60's boy bands; to his family mafia connections, dodging hit men and the law, the airplane he once hijacked, and his role in helping get the legendary rock band STYX off the ground!!! He even claims that Styx's hit song "Renegade" was written about him... who knows?? The stories he had about his late-60's Chicago group that won a Battle of the Bands contest and received a trip to Europe as the reward did pass my fact-checks so maybe it's all true..... and sure enough someone was smart enough to film him -- I did a quick Google search and found the above video that went up about 6 weeks ago and had exactly ZERO views until my peep... now you too can spend 6 minutes with Chicago Eddie -- he's hardly getting warmed up here -- look for a spoken word vinyl + dvd box set sometime early next year...


Oh mama, I'm in fear for my life from the long arm of the law
Lawman has put an end to my running and I'm so far from my home
Oh mama, I can hear your crying you're so scared and all alone
Hangman is coming down from the gallows and I don't have very long

The jig is up the news is out they've finally found me
The renegade who had it made retrieved for a bounty
Never more to go astray
This will be the end today of the wanted man

Oh mama, I've been years on the lamb and had a high price on my head
Lawman said get him dead or alive now it's for sure he'll see me dead
Dear mama, I can hear you crying you're so scared and all alone
Hangman is coming down from the gallows and I don't have very long

The jig is up, the news is out they finally found me
The renegade who had it made retrieved for a bounty
Never more to go astray
The judge'll have revenge today on the wanted man

Oh mama, I'm in fear for my life from the long arm of the law
Hangman is coming down from the gallows and I don't have very long

The jig is up, the news is out they finally found me
The renegade who had it made retrieved for a bounty
Never more to go astray
This'll be the end today of the wanted man, the wanted man

[Incomprehensible]
No, no, no, no

Oh mama, don't let him take me
Oh no, oh no, no, no, no, no, no
