I want to extend my warmest birthday wishes to one of my best bigfooting buddies, Tom Yamarone. Today, he turns [censored] years old.
Tom is best known for his bigfoot song repertoire, often appearing at bigfoot conferences and campfires throughout the country. His most recent appearance was at the 2010 Ohio Bigfoot Conference with Bob Gimlin.
Tom’s songs are not only catchy, but they are factually accurate. He writes the melodies and lyrics, using a Dylanesque song-writing style with witty rhymes and clever language to keep us smiling.
A lesser known facet to Tom is his unrelenting push for documentation of the sasquatch as a real animal. He encourages beginner and veteran bigfooters alike to correctly document what they find and share it with the appropriate authorities. I couldn’t agree more.
Here is a short video of Tom in musical action. He’s actually standing in Bluff Creek a little less than a mile from the Patterson/Gimlin filmsite.
