This is a bitter-sweet post for me. About 30 to 35 years ago, I discovered a area band that blew me away. It was a four-piece band called of all things, Tasty Nickel. (You know I never did hear the story of where the name came from) They were a regular in two different bars here in town and I would see them play most every night they were here.
The band consisted of a married couple, his brother and a few different drummers. The highlight of every time I saw them was a song called “Too Old to Cry.” The lead singer, who wrote it, did the song so good with such emotion… I would sit and really get lost in the song about a break-up.
The band went through some changes, disbanded and the couple started another band briefly. But hung up the road life for something more stable. They completed some college and moved on to different lives. I lost touch with them when they moved to Virginia, I think it was.
Sadly, I recently discovered the lead singer who wrote “Too Old to Cry” had passed away from cancer. I do NOT own this song and I do NOT own the pictures, but I put together a video about 15 years ago for the song. I have debated whether or not to post it, but I still want Craig’s music to be heard. I really love this song and have always dreamed to hear it on the radio one day. So, if I can get this to work you will now see and hear “Too Old to Cry.”
Alas… WP does not allow free subscriptions to add video OR audio files without paying. So sadly I cannot share with you all. Trust me it is an amazing song! More videos will return with U tomorrow. SORRY!
