    The sheltered boy here discovered Sam Cooke about six months ago…seriously, I know. A week doesn’t go by though without me jamming to Sam Cooke live at the Copa. Would have loved to have been able to jam to this guy live. NPR has good birthday tribute to him here .

    What would he have accomplished had he not died at 33. My very favorite singer… the GREAT Mr. Sam Cooke.
