Edward L. Starr
May 9, 1956 - November 21, 2003


Eddie was a great Cowsill fan and a musician in this own right. I got to meet Eddie in 1999 and after a "I'll do the polite hello and bow out" thing, spent hours listening to his fascinating life story.

Click here to watch/listen to Eddie playing with the Cowsills. Eddie was wearing the white vest.

Eddie had a fun sense of humor. Click here to read a little of that humor.

Eddie's obituary reads:
Edward was employed by Granite City Steel as an Operator and was a member of the United Steelworkers AFL-CIO. He had also worked at Cerro Copper in Sauget, IL. He was an avid musician, song writer, lyricist, and proudly represented his union members with his music at many public functions.
