Sad news: the South African pioneering jazz musician passed away today at the age of 78.  Bluesad

I met him a year ago, walked over to him and stuck out my hand in greeting.
He looked at me and said "I don't shake hands."
I went "Oops." Buggedout
He then stood up and gave me a hug.  TeddyR Thumbup

RIP, Bra [Brother] Hugh.  Bluesad

Nice story Trev.

I just realized that I met him in January 2017: I will never forget him looking up at me and saying that he didn't shake anyone's hands and then he grabbed me in a bear hug. I could only squeak "OK" while he was holding me.  Smile

His music is timeless.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
