One of the highlights of working catering gigs lately is carpooling with my friend, Brian. No, I don't really do anything with him outside of work, but I still consider him a dear friend. Honestly, he has to be one of the brightest fellas I've ever met. He seems to know a little about everything. And a lot about a lot of things. Anyway, when I ride with him, I enjoy being introduced to new music. He always tells me that many of the songs he plays for me are "classics." But, truth be told, is a classic really a classic if you've never heard of it? Reminds me of the question about a tree falling in the forest. Well, last night, he introduced me to a couple of songs by Radiohead and Jimi Hendrix. Until last night, I had no idea that Jimi actually sang. I always thought he only played the guitar. See, you can learn somethin' new every day. That is, when you close your mouth and LISTEN. -- I enjoy Brian. A lot. A whole hell of a lot! And I wish him the best that life has to offer. Because he deserves it.
