HE TRIED IT ALL!!
This is a postcard given to me by my good friend Bud Cockrell! Bud was an amazing talent, and I was shocked, but not surprised when I heard of his death this year! The world has a tendency to take talented people like Bud for granted, but out of billions, he was truly one of a kind! Here's a song from his one album with his wife at the time, the equally talented Pattie Santos, "I Tried It All". This is not a song, it's a true story! This song also features the talents of an even sadder story, the Jimi Hendrix of the bass, Jaco Pastorious on Rhythm guitar, the amazing Ernie Watts on Sax, and the sweetest of background vocals from The Sweet Inspirations!
