Sky Saxon. Photo with Arthur, 2004 at The Forum in London. “I only met
Sky once or twice when he came to see Arthur back in 1991 or ’92 or
both years. Time dulls the memory. Mostly I stayed out of the way while
the two guys hung out doing their music things. I was chauffeur for them
once on a trip to Malibu where we went to see Arthur’s friend Paul
Blakemore. (Paul has also passed on. There is a pic of him in the photo
section of this web site)… What I want to say here as I write is,
Arthur Lee had a sincere affection and respect for Sky Saxon. I believe
the feelings were mutual. So, add one more member to that heavenly band
as they continue to rock on.
MILES. For Arthur’s friend Buddy Miles, Rest In Peace. Condolences to
his wife & family.
is a song, for you to listen to titled “Arthur’s Song”, written by
Smooth who with Allan Talbert recorded it in Allan’s home studio.
They tell me this is the first mix but I like it just the way it is
especially the laughter. Curtis & Allan went to school with Arthur.
The three remained friends & stayed in touch all of the years from
those school days on… along with many other school buddies who all
remained friends into their adult years. But you’ll read about that
later on in the book.
