I played piano with Bob one rainy night, and one night only, in St. Louis, Missouri, at the tiny little Majestic Hotel bar. It was 1989. I was playing the blues in C on an old upright there, and Bob sat down next to me and joined in. We slipped out to a back alley through a door right there next to the piano, stood in the rain whilst he smoked a cigarette. Went back in, he brought up the whole band and we played til the wee hours. Love Dickie Landry -- one of the many incredible folks I got to know whilst living in Manhattan in the '80s.
Dickie Landry is one of our Cajun Heroes.. in Lafayette Louisiana.. humble as humble pie.. he knows everybody here and everybody knows him. there's not an ego bone in his body and he's one of the most respected musicians of our area not just because of his illustrious past but because we love him here so much.. he's play music generously with us all.. signed; friend and fan Jerry LeJeune
Third time writing my comment. I keep losing it! Just want to say great inaugural interview ray. Interesting renaissance man. Dickie and bob could have been great friends if the timing was right. Too bad.
Ha, “sweating my balls off onstage”!!
