Mr. Vanderleun, There will be no sneaking out early to see the band. Your chores are not completed. I thank you, in advance, for your co-operation in this matter. Have a blessed Advent.
What can I say? Brubeck was my Elvis. I discovered him an high school, right at the end of my punk rock career, and I never was the same again. Never went back to rock music, either.
He was a good Catholic and, by all accounts, a great guy. I never met him, sadly.
Fun Fact: Brubeck is also name-checked in the Best Music Video of All Time.
We'll have the chance to see them live again. They'll wait.
