    Imagine a five or six year old editec, finding himself thust upon the back of a full dress Harley.

    Imagine that toe-headed kid wide eyed as he finds himself tearing down a two lane blacktop road, the Harley's pipes trumpeting into the shimmering summer heat of a Pennsylvania July morning.

    The man driving that iron horse?

    A jet-black duckbacked hair, engineer-boot shod, blue jeans and white teeshirt, motor cycle jacket (complete with chrome stars!)-- full blown Philly greaser named (I kid you not!) Sal, tearing down those softening -in--the-sun two land blacktop tarred roads with a young editec hanging on for dear life-- half in terror, half is complete AWE -- that anyone on EARTH could be that fucking cool!

    Now imagine that quintesstial 1950s rocker maniac on his baby-blue, full dress 64 cubic inch hog singing at the top of his lungs as we leaned into those hair-pin turns, and rode oblivious to what was over those blind hills that day.

    And THIS was the song that Sal sang whch gave me my first inkling of what R n R was really all about.

    And SAL?

    Whatever his last name was, (something Eye-Talian, for sure) he will forever be my benchmark for what we mean when we use the term: rebel without a cause.

    The Fonzi?

    The Fonze wouldn't make a Valtalis grease stain on Sal's rat-tailed comb folks.

    The Fonze TRIED to be cool.

    Sal wasn't trying to be anything.. he couldn't help himself!
