Thanks ccjoe & johnman...

....for reminding me to honor this man with a sorrowful soul on this quiet evening Reminds me of an old song, Abraham, Martin and John" that came out in '68. My heart goes out to "Big John's" family and to all of us - the family of mankind.

Has anybody here seen my old friend Abraham?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
He freed a lot of people,
But it seems the good they die young.
You know, I just looked around and he's gone.

Anybody here seen my old friend John?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
He freed a lot of people,

Anybody here seen my old friend Martin?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
He freed a lot of people,
But it seems the good they die young.
I just looked 'round and he's gone.

Didn't you love the things that they stood for?
Didn't they try to find some good for you and me?
And we'll be free
Some day soon, and it's a-gonna be one day ...

Anybody here seen my old friend Bobby?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
I thought I saw him walk up over the hill,
With Abraham, Martin and John.

yet another time

the government screwed up and let a nut out. the killer already had numerous weapons violations and should not have been on the street. if they would enforce the existing gun laws he would never have seen the light of day. let's hope they will, at least in this instance, follow the letter of the law and give the killer what he so richly deserves. racist slime like him do not deserve to walk the same sidewalks as the rest of us. they lock up people for smokin' a little herb and let scum like him out.....go figure........rest in peace big john...you and your family are in my prayers.

the guard at the Holocost museum who was killed was named Stephen Tyrone Johns. his nickname was 'Big John' since he stood over 6 ft. tall. he had a son and had recently remarried.

the museum was closed for the day in honour of Stephen Tyrone Johns.

RIP, may the 4 winds blow you safely home.

The Queen

I heard Koko play live only once, in 1979 at a now defunct club in Cambridge, Massachusetts called The Speakeasy. The band I was in at that time played there a year later. It was a glorious dump, but some of the greatest blues artists played there in its heyday.

I'll never forget my only audience with the Queen of the Blues.
