"Son, be a simple kind of man"

Here is a video of my son, Caleb, singing "Simple Man" at the Red Barn in Wilson, NC.
I think he felt privileged that the band let him sing a number.  Thanks to Ralph Kennedy for taking the video.
(Even if you are not registered with Facebook, you can click on the video, click "not now" on joining Facebook, then go full screen with the video.  That worked for me.)

By the way, "Simple Man" is a Lynyrd Skynyrd song, and lead singer Johnny Van Zant had this to say about the song:
"Well that's a great song and something that I think we all live by. I think anybody out there needs to respect their mother, and the words of their mother. It's mama talking to you in that song and I think it's probably one of my favorites if not my favorite to do live. It's just a great song and that one stays in the set and the crowd always goes crazy on that one."
I'll say amen to that (even if that's not my kind of music).

  1. I followed along. With the implants nothing 'sounds' good. Caleb is looking good and is at home with the guitar, much more relaxed. I am sure the mandolin takes a lot more concentration. He is looking good. I think he is about three years younger than our talented grandsons.
    I know you and Bro. R are proud of him!
    From the actions I see the Hag. ;-)
