Wow! Weezy, bring me my bong biaotch!!!!!!!!!
That is pretty wild! Who knew?
Dave Chappelle and Wayne Brady knew ..
Wasn't there an English guy in 'The Jeffersons' that was kind of like Holdsworth?
That ranks up there with the most odd things I've ever read.. =)
"man, i miss the mid to late 70's..."
the postscript is almost as cool...
I met Sherman in the late 80s. He used to come into the GC on Sunset where I worked all the time. We BSed and talked keyboards a lot. He's a cool cat.
Anyone who used to hang out on places like rec.music.progressive and alt.music.yes on Usenet has known for a long time that Hemsley was a Yes fan.
The biggest surprise is that Daevid Allen didn't smoke
This is great..fantastic. Somehow it makes me very happy to know this..
I remember reading Horace Silver's autobiography, where he mentioned meeting Sherman Hemsley during his progressive era and discovering that he was a big fan of his United States Of Mind album. He mentioned that Sherman wanted to do some type of collaboration with him, but it didn't pan out.
Ha! That's funny, but you're kinda right. Paul Benedict, aka Bentley
I'm not buying into this for a second--not the fact that he likes Gong, but Flying Teapot on a loop and all the rest? Poppycock.
And Helen Willis (Roxie Roker) is Lenny Kravitz's mother...
Let me just say through my associations back then, that article is 100% correct in my observation regarding Sherman's lifestyle and his croonies. Saw it first hand numerous times... pretty whacked out! And I'll leave it at that.
what an interesting story...........
