A writer for the local major newspaper (also a bass player) wrote a eulogy about Paul that appeared in the newspaper the next day. To paraphrase, he wrote that deLay got a lot of music out of the harmonica " the lowliest of musical instruments". A definite Rodney Dangerfield moment for Harpdom. The rest of the eulogy was heartfelt. But to the newspaper writer from yours truly, a verb followed by a pronoun. Never did care for many newspaper writer/ bass players even though there importance cannot be underestimated.
We already miss "Big Bubba".
PS: Curtis Salgado performed at the memorial and was great as usual new liver and all.
