Eddie Starr, Presente!
The very sad news of my friend and comrade Eddie Starr's passing came to me from dozens of friends who knew how much I loved and admired him. Only 47 years old, Eddie died of a massive heart attack at work. Like so many Steelworkers, his job increased in stress, with constant mandatory overtime. He was a great union brother and songwriter. I recorded his wonderful "Spoiled Brats of the Ruling Class" on "Have You Been to Jail for Justice?" Check his obituary & read the many touching tributes in his guestbook. Eddie was a true working class hero.
