You helped introduce the Indigo Girls, Shawn Mullins, Sugarland, Jon Mayer, the Civil Wars …” at which point Eddie stopped me and said, “All that and $5 will get you a beer.” The lesson I learned from Eddie on that day was that if you ever rested on your laurels, you were done for. I miss Bob, who sold the Attic late last year. Now I’ll miss Eddie. He’s a generous and genuine guy. We wish him the best with Eddie Owen Presents.
