The Partridge Family meets the Red Cross? Mother Teresa with a saxophone.

richie-petrello This isn’t a PR stunt or a reality show, this is as real as it gets – this is human truth. It’s one hell of a story.

Born and raised on Long Island, Richy Petrello has seen his career come full circle; complete with a meteoric upswing and a tumbling downfall, only to rise from the ashes like a Phoenix. If you knew Richy back in the day, he was a fierce Sax cat – the man was a Rock and roll terrorist, terrorizing his own body with alcohol and drugs, waking up in his own vomit.

Richy lived this cliché of sex, drugs and rock and roll for many years; Continue reading The Partridge Family meets the Red Cross? Mother Teresa with a saxophone.

THE SECRETS IN THE ATTIC

by Sally Deering

 

sept-rvo-cover-photo-seascape21

Back in the 1970s, alumni from the Argos Eyes Drama Society at Saint Peter’s College met one night in a tiny Jersey City attic and talked about starting a theater where they could put on plays that challenged them artistically and attracted local audiences. By the end of the meeting, that group of aspiring playmakers became the Attic Ensemble.

     Several theaters and more than a hundred plays later, the Attic Ensemble has settled into the Barrow Mansion on Wayne Street in Jersey City, a block from the Grove Street PATH in a hip neighborhood where the company continues to stretch and grow. Continue reading THE SECRETS IN THE ATTIC

Late July Bob Dylan Has Run in with LongBranch, NJ Police Investigating A Suspicious Man – Called in by Home Owner

b-dylanBob Dylan’s -A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall
Oh, where have you been, my blue-eyed son?
Oh, where have you been, my darling young one?
I’ve stumbled on the side of twelve misty mountains,
I’ve walked and I’ve crawled on six crooked highways,
I’ve stepped in the middle of seven sad forests,
I’ve been out in front of a dozen dead oceans,
I’ve been ten thousand miles in the mouth of a graveyard,
And it’s a hard, and it’s a hard, it’s a hard, and it’s a hard,
And it’s a hard rain’s a-gonna fall… In Long Branch, NJ?

In late July Music superstar Bob Dylan was questioned by Long Branch Police when they were called to investigate a suspicious man peeking into a vacant home. It was later found out Mr. Dylan did nothing wrong and was in the area on tour and was just looking at property.
