The Dick Allen Experience
Posted By Dayn Perry On December 20, 2010 @ 4:33 pm In Dick Allen Research Department,The History of History | 1 Comment
In keeping with Carson’s explorations of Dick Allen, there’s this:
What to say about this thing of wonder? The White Sox wore red! He’s juggling! He has the facial hair of a 19th-century railroad baron! And: He’s smoking in the dugout!
I once heard an interview with Paul Stanley in which he said something to the effect of, “For a while there in the 70s, every song was about sex or what you were going to do that night.”
That’s as succinct and penetrating of a comment about a generation as I’ve ever encountered. The Dick Allen SI cover is similarly illuminating. This photo couldn’t be of anyone else at any other time.
Viva la Crash.
