Live, Tonight Only

Barry Fey is dead.

barryfey_1367197482201.jpgIf you grew up in Denver, or arrived with the 70s wave (as did I) Barry Fey was the man. He brought the music world to Colorado. Big bands - The Stones, Led Zeppelin, The Who. He made Red Rocks the place to be when it was just a bunch of seats in the hills. He saved live classical music in the Mile High City, reconstituting the Denver Symphony as The Colorado Symphony Orchestra. If a couple of people played guitar and sang, Berry knew about them.

Barry put us on the baseball map, planting the seeds that became the Colorado Rockies. His book was forwarded by Ozzy Osbourne and Peter Townshend.

Last stop for the crazy train.


  1. For so many years he was Mr. Concert. "Summer of Stars" always began with him.
