HB, Mr. Cooke

It’s Sam Cooke’s birthday and I’m celebrating it again this year (last year’s entry). He’d be celebrating 77 years on Earth were he alive today.

Here’s a link to the Wikipedia entry on Mr. Cooke and another link to the biography maintained by the company (Abkco) that sells Mr. Cooke’s recordings.

    There’s another biography which tells a more personal side of the Sam Cooke story called “Our Uncle Sam: The Sam Cooke Story From His Family’s Perspective” (www.OurUncleSam.com). More details of tonight’s world-wide celebration in his honor can be found at http://www.AskaSamCookeQuestion.com

  2. Mr. Greene, thanks very much for the additional notes. I shall read the book and look at the site.
