Boots Randolph R.I.P.


Recommended Posts

Awwww...my dad was a big fan of his too and we got to hear him play three years ago with Jimmy Sturr and his Christmas show. What a talented musician and such a gentleman. My dad brought one of his albums and happened to run into Boots before the show and they talked for a while and he signed the album.

Remember that scene in "That Thing You Do" when the Wonders are playing a band in the Rick and Anita movie and Lenny has a sax and he says "hey guys...Boots Randolph...yeahhhhhh" That was so neat!!

Hey --- I just saw this thread, and somehow hadn't even heard! Shows how absorbed I've been lately. (Heck, I didn't even watch the All-Star Game!) Anyway, my dad and mom always had a few Boots LPs and 8-tracks around, and I've given 'em a couple of Boots CDs, so I've always had an appreciation for his style. Pretty distinctive sound.... RIP, Boots.

Here's a bit from Boots, with Floyd Cramer:
