Pepe Smith, who gave me courage to go ahead and make the idea of Rock Ed real. This was in Ayuyang, Baguio, a long long time ago -when his glee in saying "OKEY YAN, TULOY MO YAN" made all the difference in the world for then-hesitant me. Salamat Salamat Pepe, rock n roll. pic.twitter.com/Gang Capati
