  1. I was lucky enough to be invited to Hardy's 75th birthday party,thanks to Mike Gibson, the party was just outstanding. Seeing and being able to listen to the great talent that came from the early years of the early Louisvile rock era was just fantastic. Some of the best "Rock&Roll" music came from the many talented musicians right here in Lou.
