Richard Barone - Words and Music - 2012

by Darren DeVivo

Richard Barone first made his name in the early '80s with The Bongos, but it was his 1987 live album, Cool Blue Halo, that really got the critics' attention and started his solo career. Richard recently celebrated the album's 25th anniversary with a new Cool Blue Halo concert and film, and he stopped by Studio A to talk with me about that project and how the original album came to be.
