SAM BAKER:

Sam Baker was born in 1954 in Itasca, Texas. He attended Itasca High School, where he played varsity football with fellow musician Tommy Alverson.[2] In 1986, Baker was traveling by train to Machu Picchu in Peru when a bomb placed on a luggage rack above his head by the Shining Path guerrilla group exploded, killing seven other passengers including the three people who had been sitting with him.[1][3][4] Baker was left with numerous injuries, including brain damage, a cut artery, and blown-in eardrums.[5] His injuries required 17 reconstructive surgeries.[6] He has a constant case of tinnitus and the fingers of his left hand were left gnarled. He did retain enough dexterity to grasp a guitar pick and over time, re-taught himself to play his guitar left-handed.[6] In a radio interview in 2020, Baker said his brain injury affected his use of language and he struggled to remember nouns. Writing helped him relearn. At the same time he was influenced by the music of Lightning Hopkins and his writing became songwriting as he discovered melody.[7] Previous to the bombing, Baker had worked as a bank examiner and whitewater river guide.[3][8]
