Several days ago, Allan Shadow published a colorful tribute post about David “Honeyboy” Edwards and how he received a Lifetime Achievement (Grammy) award last week.
Here’s a ninety-four year old man that has given his life to songwriting and music. How could we (humans) not be somewhat interested in this story? At least that’s what I thought.
I counted seventy-eight plays on MySpace (where Mr. Edwards’ online presence is maintained) - twenty-four hours later. It’s kind of shocking at first, but I guess it’s not all that surprising when you think about our culture.
If you have fans, an audience, Twitter followers or Facebook friends, please let’s show this man the ATTENTION he deserves.
Congratulations Mr. Edwards.
