over the years.......
We talked may times
But, usually not more than 30 seconds.
We did have two longer talks.
One was in 1965 I belive.
The Trio did its first show in Louisville.
My buddies and I went to the airport to meet them.
We asked John if he wanted a ride to the hotel and he jumped in our car.
This was my first real encounter with a member of the Kingston Trio.
Many years later, I was at one of John's shows in Louisville and Dave Batti was playing with him.
I asked John if he remembered us giving him a ride to the hotel. he said No.
I bought John's Last Campaign album at this show. I asked John to autograph it....
Above his signature ... he wrote: Thanks for the ride.
I told him I was from Lexington, where his father was born, and I asked him if the show in Lexington had any special significance. he said no
Over the years I saw John many times. But, not much ever said. Dave and I talked too. Much more said.
