    Real quote according to either Leonard Feather or Dan Morgenstern from "Down Beat" magazine. Included in the liner notes on one of Maynard's albums from the late sixties.

    Really? Wow. I wonder what the back story to that quote is? Is there some bad blood that I'm not aware of?

    To contribute to the thread: Revelation's 8:6. Let's see if y'all know how to use a Bible.

    Remember the old Dewey Decimal System or card catalouges used in libraries? The other day I was in the library, the power to the network (internet) went down... no one could figure out how to find their books!! They just stared at the physical card dump like it was a new piece of technology! HAAHA. I live a blessed life.

    "Don't keep your trumpet in the trunk, or in the car during the Winter, so after ice forms inside it and moves the brass, we don't have to read your posts, "Why does my valve do this, or why does water leak out here...."

    Winter? Ice? Trunk? - I don't even own an overcoat. Here it is, virtually the middle of winter and I travelled to work in a short sleeved shirt. Ahhh, God's Own Country - Oz. :D
