My brother Leon started it all. He played the piano. In school they made me leader of the orchestra because I played the violin, but I followed Leon and the boys in his jazz band around.
I wasn't making it with the violin because I was playing all of the 'long hair' stuff.
There's nothing like walking out and watching the people get turned on. Nothing in the world could replace it.
