Happy Birthday Ronnie Hawkins

Oops….I missed a big one. Ronnie “The Hawk” Hawkins was 82 yesterday. I had the pleasure of meeting him 36 years ago here in London. You don’t so much as meet “The Hawk” as you get pulled into his orbit for the short time you are near him. We were at his bar downtown, he came in, went from table to table telling tales, buying beer and moving on. He was great. It was just after John Lennon had been shot in New York, and they were friends, so, we were entertained with a few tales about John and Yoko and Ronnie’s farm in Peterborough. So, Happy Birthday Ronnie….
