Dr. Ramsey Lewis!!!!

Yesterday, I got to meet one of my favorite musicians. Ramsey Lewis. He’s a jazz musician for all the metal-heads out there. This record, Sun Goddess, got me through my 20’s. I ran into him over at WBEZ and was surprised that more people didn’t. I was coming out of a reporters meeting and nobody knew who he was. So I walked up. He asked me if I knew where Richard Steele was. Just then, Richard walked up. So Richard Steele and Ramsey Lewis were shooting the shit about old times. And I was just standing there. The third amigo. Just saying a lot of “right!” or “really?” I’m sure they loved me. They probably thought I was there in the 1970’s jazz clubs with them. Or they couldn’t figure out how to tell me to leave. Either way, I met Ramsey Lewis!
