Great story teller.
Chick is my husband’s friend from back in the day.
Trumpet player extraordinaire, whose Dad played third chair (trumpet) for the Chicago Symphony his whole life, yet never came to see Chick play professionally until they ran into each other in Munich while Chick was touring Europe with Rod Stewart.
Thirty-five years later, Chick arrives in his white Mustang with navy blue racing stripes and says to my husband, Michael, “Hey man, you haven’t changed a bit.”
