From OnMilwaukee: "Kevn Kinney remembers Richard LaValliere":
When I left The Prosecutors, Richard and myself had an acoustic duo called The Lonesome Desperados. I think we did two shows and a picnic! But he REALLY shaped me when he took me to see "Don't Look Back" at the Oriental on a matinee. I really hated folk singers growing up in the '70s. Dudes with mustaches grifting on your girlfriend or singing around campfires.
But after I saw that movie I was ashamed that I lumped Dylan with all of that. I bought an acoustic guitar and I was off and running; folk singer humdinger one too many mornings and a thousand miles behind.
