Youre the man who got me started playing and loving the Guitar back in 1952 my sister use to be the family hawk for talent, around 1949 or 50 she picked up your 78 Cherokee was on one side, the sound was fantastic.
I moved to Brooklyn in late 56 and started catching you at Byrd Land you were usually playing at the same time Count Basie was there, Joe Williams would go nest door to the coffee shop and drink coffee until he was on for the next song, I always got a kick out of Joe singing was a chore for him, he would rather be someplace else.
I was drafted in 58, that put an end to playing the Guitar until I got out. I had heard about the tragedy in your life and youre decision to move to Colorado. Im happy youve found peace there. Although I was born in NY I can appreciate moving to a less hectic place. I moved to Maryland a little town Emmitsburg its a much e-z-er life.
With Love and the best. Thanks for everything.
