HONEYBOYDescribing his Bluesman life: ” On Saturday, somebody like me or Robert Johnson would go into one of these little towns, play for nickels and dimes. And sometimes, you know, you could be playin’ and have such a big crowd that it would block the whole street. Then the police would come around, and then I’d go to another town and where I could play at. “

Dick Waterman and I had lunch in Memphis .. I was surprised to learn:
1. The Music Thing was a Fluke ~ (Dick graduated from Boston U with Journalism Degree)
“I’d love to go back to Sports Writing”
2. It was love at first sight: “When I first saw Cinda (Dick was 70/71 and never married) I contacted my sister and said ‘she is the girl I am going to marry’
3. It was after the Korean War ~ Secret Security Clearance as a Cryptographer in the Army during the 1950s
4. Raised in Plymouth, Mass. – Jewish family ~ dad graduated from Harvard and became the ‘small town doctor’
5. Dick is generally called ‘Mr. Waterman, and not ‘Dick’ ~ even by “people I’ve met several times”
6. Dick is open, warm, friendly, honest and ‘a mensch’  - photo by Shein Die FSCN8202_2-2
