Ahem. Everyone will please note that the "light of [Amos's] life" is someone who plays the trumpet. Not the pianoforte, not the uillean pipes, not the ukelele, not the guitar, not the drums, but the trumpet.
The trumpet. The chosen instrument of the gods (and, by proxy, Amos). The trumpet, whose golden tones have the power to stir hearts to battle or to lull babies into tender sleep. Think of those who have played the trumpet -- Miles, Satch, Diz and the others -- and compare them to the drug-besotted louts like Jimi and Jerry and Liberace and then ask yourself which instrument epitomizes Truth, Justice, Equality, and all that human race holds dearest. The answer comes loudly and clearly: the trumpet!
