Besides being chased by Buddy Moss with a pistol in the 70's (see "Oddenda & Such" columns of mine in B&R), my experiences were generally good. Older folks like Wilie Trice ALWAYS kept a distance and he always referred to me as "Mr. Pete", and Bastin as "Mr. Bruce". That was as loose as he could go, no matter how friendly we became over the years. And we were friends, of that there is no doubt - my last meeting with him before he died tells me that.

Your experience was much like my own, Peter B.  I always operated from a "friendly but not familiar" stance.  I wouldn't have presumed to have acted like I was these older musicians' new best friend.  I would say, too, in my experience, the better I came to know musicians, the more I was interested in them as people and the less I was interested in them as repositories of music.  After my first meeting with Sam Chatmon, I don't know if I ever discussed music with him again.  We talked about life stuff, family, jobs, dogs he had had, and stuff like that.  He was very grandfatherly to me, with life advice and so on.
All best,
Johnm

I totally know how it feels. By a series of accidents, starting about 9 months before I was born, I have a British accent and currently live in Texas.  :P

      No Alex. I'm afraid I'm not kidding. He assured me it was a common practice.
      What horrible excuses for human beings.
