To the Duke Family, My heartfelt prayers continue to go out for all the families and friends of such an acclaimed and loved person. May the God of all comfort be with you as we await the promises of Isa 65:19 for everyone - "No more will there be heard in her the sound of weeping or a cry of distress.

Can't believe it's been two years since the passing of the great George Duke. Think I'll put Dreamweaver on.

You took me in and taught me responsibility to family, to work hard and never quit, to be humble when praised for a good job, you showed me how be kind in the face of ignorance and cruelty, that friends are family, and music connects the hearts and minds of people all over the world. Until we see each other again Pops.

I discovered George on the Over Night Sensation Album of Frank Zappa in 74'. From that point on, I seek out his music like a bloodhound. After joing the Military, I was in a record shop in Germany, and discovered FEEL. When I came back home to Dallas, George and Billy Cobham had collaborarated On Live in Euorpe which I caught the Live show at The Agora Ballroom. When I heard he and Al Jarreau were playting the Dallas Convention Center in 2005 along with Rochelle Farrell, we danced in the isles while George played Dukey Stick on that keyboard that looks like a guitar. Rashid, I love that song also your father named for you, off of the Feel CD. He was a happy loving music man, who brings me still hours of listening joy. Thank God he created George Duke, for George was such a genius creator himself!
