I love you, Mama.
Its a sad day for music lovers.
Saw this this morning while teaching. We played a song, as not all my students knew him. My Czech student offered to put one on from his phone, so I let him, only to hear the golden tones of The Walrus of Love, Barry White instead. It was a strangely hilarious moment.I'm so glad for him, that he had the success and acclaim that he deserved, and a long life to enjoy it.
May- I love you, baby. Remember how we danced? Remember? I will never forget. heartinhand- It is a sad day for me, I'll tell you that.Jo- Have you ever read his autobiography? It is so beautiful. What a life.
I thought of you immediately when I heard the news today, Mary. I'm just over here listening to my albums & looking at youtubes, doin' a lil day drinking...here's a fave of mine...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LWLAAzOBoBI...I can picture so perfectly in my mind your babies & your man & you in that red dress on the second row swaying & shimmying to the greatness that was Riley B King...just not ready to let him go.
I too thought of you at once when I heard the news. May he rest in music.
Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
