Baby I'm There. Howie was able to sing it at my driveway concert at Derek's place last summer.

Thanks for the tribute show. Howie was a good egg. He was running along with many writer’s bloc years and song along and it’s sad we lost this one. I am listening for the tribute live. Last thing I recall of Howie was feedback on a new song. Not sure I will take the advice but I appreciate it! . I couldn’t locate the tribute page yesterday and I am hoping to see it later.

Listening back to this lovely tribute to Howie Hooper. Lovely words and music! People will be speaking his name for a very, very long time to come. He has left a lot of good in the Singer/Songwriter community, and beyond.
