Fugitive Kind of Love: Del Shannon

Mitchell Cohen, Creem, June 1982

"THERE WAS A girl I thought was really in love with me. I mean, my heart would pound when she came around. She gave me her bracelet to wear. Most likely I begged to wear it. I probably pestered her so much she let me wear it...The next day, she was out with this other guy. I took her bracelet off and put it on a railroad track."
