… my dad died. After the days when he followed the establishment line, politically, we became best buddies. He played clarinet in school and was a big fan of Benny Goodman. So… I found this quote in my calendar book:
“Accept responsibility for your life… it is you who will get you where you want to go, nobody else.”
That quote is from Les Brown, the band leader. He was one of Dad’s clients when I was a kid. I searched YouTube for a good Les Brown video and the stuff didn’t trick my trigger. But found this related video. I thought Green Onions was a Booker T thing. Seems it is older than that. These guys caught a groove that proves the reason for music.
Dad, I miss you and still live my life to fill your expectations.
