Rare Earth tune "I Just Want To Celebrate."
From the Phröntrange Liner Notes Written by Jimmy Pankow: Rock and Roll and Songrwriter's Hall of Fame Inductee and Composer-Trombone with The Supergroup Chicago:
Pioneer(def): one who bravely ventures where no one has gone before.
Steve Wiest is a pioneer. He is fearless. He is a visionary who dares to throw convention to the wind. His music screaming from the very depths of his being, with no rules! This body of work does not seek approval by would-be critics. It emanates, unfettered and joyously, from Steve's heart and soul. Oh, and he has that sly grin! His humor and wit are so evident here, as well as a strong supporting cast. He has enlisted the very best to accompany him on this adventure. We're talking SERIOUS chops across the board!
So..., fasten your seat belts and enjoy the ride!
...And this guy, who's bestowed on me more accolades than I could ever possibly deserve, PLAYS HIS ASS OFF!
