    Funny real anecdote: I was improvising a Blues tune on my sax and my teacher was very impressed. I told him that I call it the 'lick my love pump' tune

    I cut three fingers of my right hand in a table saw. My ring finger knuckle is fused.

    Within the same week I visited the Space Needle in Seattle and the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Is this random enough? :-)

    I was born two months prematurely (many decades ago) and weighed less than 2 lbs. Today, I'm 6 ft 6 in tall and weigh nearly 275 lbs. As my dad says, I'm a big boy for my size!

    Sax related: When I was a kid my dad invited James Moody to dinner and to spend the night. I had no idea how cool this way until many years later.
