Thread Name: Who influenced you to become a musician
Subject: RE: Who influenced you to become a musician
Gordon Bok has always been an encourager. Many years ago I booked Bok, Trickett and Muir for their very first ever concert together. Gordon stayed overnight at our place and we spent well into the night playing music after the concert. What moved me was that he just wanted to listen to me. I hadn't started performing concerts back then, with no expectation of doing a record and yet Gordon made me feel that I was important.
That is one of his finest gifts.
