My Brush with Greatness

Hey Bart-mon,

In 1971,  I was freshly out of the Air Force and had rejoined the band that I was in before I enlisted. 
We lived in Anchorage, Alaska and gigged regularly.  The music scene in Anchorage was fairly vital those days.

We set up a blues revue that included Ellas McDaniel.  I was asked to pick him up at the airport in my MG.

 I showed up on time and welcomed Bo Diddley to Alaska. 
As I drove him to his hotel, we chatted and joked easily.  Mr. Diddley (It cracks  me up to call him that. 
I think about In the Heat of the Night - They call me MISTER Diddley!) was a very nice gentleman with
no obvious pretense or ego.  He will always be remembered by his Dum DiDum DiDum Dum Dum.
