A few years ago, we heard Randy Neuman live at the San Francisco Opera House. Although his voice isn’t what it once was, his showmanship is brilliant. When the children were small we taught them “Political Science,” and it would be fun to hear their angelic voices chirping “Drop the big one now…”
One story he told that night was about going out to a restaurant with his teenage daughter. Randy likes to sit at a corner table facing the walls to avoid unnecessary attention, but his daughter took that seat. When her mother remonstrated, his daughter said, “Oh, come on! He’s not that famous.”
For telling this story, and especially for his wonderful songs, he’s one of my favorites.
