Subject: RE: Because of.. I started to listen to...
Hey ranger Steve, do you remember Lee Moore the coffee drinking nighthawk?.He and I used to do Smokey Greene's bluegrass festival in Porter Corners NY. He always carried that stupid music stand with his songs on it. He sang the same songs year after year and never memorized any of them.
I remember one time, he was getting ready to go on stage and I helped him by carrying his music stand with its heavy base, and he remarked, "Now you can tell everyone that you played bass for me."
Another time he met me as I came off the stage, he said, "Mister, for a performance like that, you deserve a 5th" He handed me a broken guitar string.
Comedy was not his long suit.
