If you saw the film Dirty Dancing and one of the 55 million people who own the Dirty Dancing soundtrack then you certainly know the song that Stacy Widelitz composed with long time friend Patrick Swayze . . . "SHE"S LIKE THE WIND".  We talk about the "Dirty Dancing" days hangin with him, what Patrick was like as a person and some of the other great movies the legendary actor starred in! The song was a huge hit for the movie! Plus co-writing with the great Jeff Skunk Baxter (The Doobie Brothers and Steely Dan) the original 90210 Theme Song.  Stacy is on keys, Skunk on guitars + Edgar Winter on sax.  Here is the link to the original theme opening of Beverly Hills 90210 he composed for the pilot show.
