I Only Met Him Once

Steve Roland.

But I went to his memorial service last night...out of love for his son** and respect for...well...the aged in my business? Someone who made a living doing this shit?  A life well lived?  

Attention must be paid...always.

And I was introduced to this...

An Everyman Thing of Beauty on the Ed Sullivan Show.

This is singing. This is singing live in one take.  It's warm.  It's wonderful. It's human.  It's SOUND EFFECTS.  Great guitar playing. Showmanship.

Despite the fact it's on TV, this is theater at its best.

Watch and wonder and learn.

**Warm, wonderful and showman as well, he sent his Dad out in a glorious manner.
