Never had I witnessed such fan fervor as when Dick Allen came to bat. This resulted in his exclusive walk-up, “Jesus Christ, Superstar,” my first song to editorialize a players performance.
Life behind my keyboard was glorious.
Life behind the scenes, I learned…not so much.
The “Chil Dog MVP’s” authors’ forensic-style of research, involving a vast array of sources and checking long-forgotten information, captured Chicago history with its societal and political upheaval — tumultuous and even tragic personal moments that shaped attitudes of the media, fans and Dick Allen.
The book provides the reader with a clear understanding of the big picture surrounding all of us and this once-in-a-generation superstar.
Wow, “Chili Dog MVP” even reminded me of facts about my own career that over the years had escaped my memory.
