A few years ago I was checking with a local establishment about a possible gig. Yuri replied, (read this with a slight slavic accent) "I don't need a band. I need band followers." When the Hampshire Review nominated Rain Crow for a "Moving Us Forward" title, it hit me how insightful Yuri was.
The Hampshire Review asked it's readers which of 4 individuals and 2 groups had done the most to help the community. A bunch of old guys (Rain Crow) get together and play the old Rock & Roll tunes they love-- no big deal. But when the community comes out and financially supports so many worthy benefits, those same guys get much of the acclaim. So, from the bottom of my heart, (liver, and spleen), we thank you-- the community-- for continued generous support you supply.
