Lou and Bettye!


Lou and first wife Bettye Kronstadt at the after-party for his January 27, 1973, show at Lincoln Center/Alice Tully Hall.  Possibly taken before their marriage. Met Lou at 19 a Columbia University student. "Hey you! You look normal!" - 'I am!' They were together for five years but married for one after the drugs and alcohol finished them off. Speed and alcohol are a deadly combination . . . . . . . .
