First Steps On The Moon – July 20, 1969


46 years ago today Neil Armstrong took his first steps on the moon and for the first time a man from the planet earth had stepped on another world. When the event was televised I was at the Baltimore Civic Center waiting to hear the group, Blind Faith. The performance started late as drummer Ginger Baker was watching the moon landing and first steps on television before he went onstage. I had to wait until the next day to see the famous steps and hear Armstrong’s inspiring words on TV:

 “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”
