  1. My brief 15 minutes of fame with two of this week’s questions:
    When I tended bar at a nightclub in the San Fernando Valley back in the early 80s (Tennessee Gin & Cotton), Mr. Cocker’s piano player at the time would do a jazz set on Sunday afternoons in the presence of virtually no one. Mr. Cocker showed up one afternoon, unannounced, and proceeded to sing a string of classic tunes (“Georgia”, etc.), standing no more than ten feet from where I was feeding him 151 and cokes. He was a gentle fellow who thought that he and I had met before, which we hadn’t.
    Rita Coolidge was a different story. She became belligerent at the same nightclub years earlier and had to be asked to leave, but not before she verbally tore into a few of the doormen with the typical “Don’t you know who I am?” stuff. Not the sweetest person.

    • Hey Fred!
      Always great to see you! Plus, what a great story! Someday I’ll tell you my Joe Cocker story! And yes, he was so drunk he could barely stand up!
