Just learned about the passing of Keith Wilder of Heatwave... thanks to him, Johnnie, & Rod for all of the music they created but especially this song.
To celebrate #NationalComicBookDay, here's a throwback to NYC 1985...
My best friend & I were broke away from our high school tour group in NYC to sneak inside the Marvel
building. Out intent was to crash the place, get an office tour, and meet some creators. When the elevator
doors opened, we were stunned by the giant wall mural (and the realization that our group would leave us)
so I took a quick pic of the lobby before the elevator doors closed.
This was way before 'Home Alone 2: Lost in New York' taught us how to survive without adults so give
us a break! 😉😁
Pretty sure this was when the Marvel Building was located at their 330 West 42nd Street address by Hell's Kitchen (s/o Daredevil of course)...
Happy Birthday to me thanks to the amazing craftsmanship and professionalism of the Ultimate Ears crew... my ears are crying cause they're so happy!! 👂💦
