Perhaps Mr. Allen feels guilty about his girlfriend's death. It is a most terrible experience, one that I pray I never have to experience. But I certainly find that his efforts and the article are and were misdirected.
ART FROM THE HEART
Thanks to Greg Baker for his insight in giving Ed Stokes the credit that he deserved ("Psychic Unfair," January 29).
Ed's guitar playing was always inspired. When he played on the first Rooster Head album, it seemed he knew instinctively what we were looking for. The first time I met him was at a Psychic Fair recording session. I didn't really know anyone there, so Ed came over and introduced himself. I was really taken by his friendliness and, most of all, his sincerity. Ed was a genuine person with a huge heart, and I can only hope that the first impression I make when I meet someone new is as warm and sincere as the first impression Ed Stokes made with me.
