How about a non-comical name before you think of living a life

I love Grover Washington. He was such a talented artist. My two most favorable tunes of all time are Mister Magic and Soulful Strut. My heart sanl when he died. I will always miss him.

From the time I first heard Grover's Mr. Magic, I knew that he was true artist. My father was a saxophonist that played gigs all over the south and I wanted to be like him. Fortunately I had the opportunity to pick up an ax and go to work. I never could read music but had a very good ear. The very first song I learned to play was 'Mr. Magic' because I loved that song. Mr Washington made an appearance at the Municipal Auditorium back in the 70's in the Shreveport Louisiana Municipal Auditorium and afterwards, I ran to the rear of the auditorium to shake his hand for such a wonderful performance. When I met him, I told him that I wanted to be just like him and he said, " Keep practicing because there's plenty of opportunity out here for you to make it." I was only 11 years old at the time i met him and I really lost it when his bus drove off. And when I heard the news that he passed away, my entire musical spirit died also. I wish I could have thanked him for the contributions he made to the music industry and to me. God Bless you Grover!
