Many of us have come together in thought and in spirit because of George's passing.....
George Duke's life is to be celebrated because his life was about achievement, discipline, structure, focus, love and extreme ability. George lived life "STRONG'. He lived the life of 30 musicians. He attacked life as much as life attacked him. George Duke was a true soldier of music and could very possibly be the nicest man I've ever met......!
"A walking angel"..... There isn't a person who can say that once they were in George's presence they didn't feel better!
He was a healer and a lover of people. George Duke left a gigantic footprint on the planet. I was very fortunate to know him and share tremendous experiences with this enlightened man.
The thing I'm going to miss most is calling him on the phone and greeting him with "yo Big Daddy", which many of his close friends affectionately call him.
Enjoy your next game Big Daddy!!
