This weekend is the Closing of an era. And era that lasted 50 years and Will forever be looked upon as a great era in Louisiana History. The Era of Edwin Hampton. There should Never be a day where a bandsmen will come up in this city and not know the his name.
I will be attending his Memorial services. I won’t bring the Video camera but I will probably take a few photos. This is more than an event. This is the home going of a titan.
I talked to Gerard the other night and i basically said it this way. Not to make a Full comparison. As Michael Jackson is to His Fans, Hamp is to New Orleans Band Community.
I’ll be going to bed in a Bit. hopefully able to blog before I Leave.
