Stand by Me

There’s a pretty good chance that someone’s already sent you a link to the viral video put out by Playing for Change of street musicians from all over the world playing the standard Stand by Me. If not, it’s worth a listen:

One of the best of the street musicians is Grandpa Elliot, the mostly blind singer from New Orleans. Last Saturday, on the fourth anniversary of Katrina’s visit to that city, my wife and I were walking in the French Quarter when we stumbled across Grandpa Elliot. My wife recognized him instantly.

Here’s a picture of my wife standing by Grandpa Elliot while he plays, what else, Stand by Me.
