The chef seemed to get it.

Bet JLH couldn't wait to collect his check and get back to his world of cheating spouses and drug addiction.

Daphne (thinking) "Herman's Hermits are a lot easier to dance to!"

Rodger (thinking) "I wonder if he is carrying a pistol?"

John Lee Hooker (thinking) "Good thing I decided not to play 'One Burbon, One Scotch, One Beer'"

Hi everybody- Thanks for reading and commenting.

Hi Gringo- I performed with JLH in Boston in the early eighties. I never met a man so entirely unconcerned with the opinions of others in my life. An entirely self-possessed person.
