Phoenix to Rocky Point Trek Is a Success for Peñasco Children’s Foundation

For someone who had just walked 12 hours a day for 12 days and covered 189 miles, Steve looked amazingly well. There are two main reasons for that. One, he stays in decent shape year around, although he did say that he’s a little slower than when he first made the trek in 10 days at 29 years of age.

Inside Their Greatness—Peñasco Palooza 2012—Jimmy Crespo, World Class Guitarist, Singer, Song Writer, Gold Album Recording Artist

It wasn’t until he was 14 that Jimmy Crespo began to develop his heretofore hidden musical talents. He had loved the Beatles and all kinds of rock and roll music. Once after hearing a moving riff by the Rolling Stones, he said to himself, “I can do that.” And the rest is rock and roll history.
