When Don had the first SZ jam in Shreveport several hurricanes ago, I flew from West Palm Beach to Dallas, rented a car, booked a room in Shreveport and spent and enjoyable afternoon watching, learning from and playing with Don, several of his local friends and other SZers who came in for the event. Don was, very much, the gracious host and made sure everyone met each other and got to play. Yaah....I think of him as a legend. He is the only 6'5" legend I know that ALWAYS wears a black cowboy hat.
Thanks Don. Your personal performances, MP3s and YouTube videos and helpful phone conversations have been a major influence on me and many others here in the Zone.
