I'm sending late condolences to the Boots Randolph Family because I just became aware of his death. I thank him for playing on several records by the Delcos in 1963 of which I was a member. Thanks Boot's , and one day, we'll meet again, I'm sure.

For Boots...

To this day you and
Roy Orbison are
forever linked.

WEEP NOT FOR ME


Do not weep for me when I no longer dwell among the wonders of the earth; for my larger self is free, and my soul rejoices on the other side of pain...on the other side of darkness.

Do not weep for me, for I am a ray of sunshine that touches your skin, a tropical breeze upon your face, the hush of joy within your heart and the innocence of babes in mothers arms.

I am the hope in a darkened night. And, in your hour of need, I will be there to comfort you. I will share your tears, your joys, your fears, your disappointments and your triumphs.

Do not weep for me, for I am cradled
in the arms of God. I walk with the angels, and hear the music beyond the stars.

Do not weep for me, for I am within you;
I am peace, love, I am a soft wind that caresses the flowers. I am the calm that follows a raging storm. I am an autumns leaf that floats among the garden of God, and I am pure white snow that softly falls upon your hand.

Do not weep for me, for I shall never die, as long as you remember me...
with a smile and a sigh.

I have been listening to Boots playing Saxaphone since 1969 and I have the highest admiration for his exquisite talent. He has been my inspiration and I have learned so much from listening to his outstanding playing. He is a legend!

At one time I thought I was a good sax player until I heard boots play some 25 years ago in Evanville IND. After hearing him play I went back and started over-- what talent-- Boots must of had direct contact with the man upstairs because I could tell it came from the heart and was a gift from God.

Still in our thoughts. God bless you and your family Boots. Thank you for the music. RIP>

I'm a saxophonist myself, and I have always looked up to Randolph- even before I knew his name. I had heard Yakety Sax and it made me smile to think that maybe, just maybe someday I could be that good. I will always look up to him as an inspiration to keep playing Orlean, my tenor sax. He was a worthy legend to musicians everywhere. I can only hope to someday play half as good as he was.

An absolute must for all the Musical Halls Of Fame,NASHVILLE. Have all his music, play with it to this day, modeled my style after his, but there was only one Boots Randolph. I am so glad we were able to see him in Pigion Forge when he was here last. There were some greats, but he was The Greatest. My dearest wishes for his family and friends. A singer sings, yes? But someone that can evoke the scope of emotion through a sax like he did was nothing short of a gift to us all.

Dad introduced me to his music as a 12 yr-old. Played with him years later when at the W.P.B FL Auditorium, when touring with Chet Atkins & Floyd Cramer and others through the years. Don't believe there will ever be someone that can express emotion through a Sax as sweetly as he did. His ability to gently touch the mind, or rush pure emotion and intensity through all your senses was one of a kind. God Bless Him, all his family. He will be missed, but his music and memories will not.
