    I think this confirms what we all knew - Glenn is a multi talented musician and it has been that way for many many years!
    No way I could do all that!

    No wonder he likes horn so much! He probably had sax envy the whole time he was blowing away at that trumpet.

    I was just thinking about this & it reminds me of what Glenn said when promoting AH, that he wanted to sing like various instruments. I can't remember if he said that on TLOL he wanted to sound like a trumpet, but he does on this song with its relatively short phrases, as opposed to TSOYS where the longer phrases are more like a saxophone.

    Well, it's been about a year since I checked in here and noticed this thread is still going. I just wanted to say that I played trumpet in that band and remember some of the kids in my section, i.e. the 1st chair coronet was a guy name of Gordie Simmons and he was very good. I think most kids in that section played coronet, not trumpet because that's what the Band Director preferred. They are pretty much the same-the coronet is shorter than a trumpet. I wish that we could ask Glenn what instrument he played. I think that I would have remembered if he was in my section, but not necessarily. Can someone ask him?

    Welcome back yrsago. The next time Glenn calls me, I'll be glad to ask him! Joking, of course, because, unfortunately, none of us here have a direct line to him ... at least that I know of.

    Anyway, when I saw you posted again, I went back and reread this thread. I loved reading about your 'close encounters' with Glenn back in Royal Oaks. Seems like Glenn's risk-taking and willingness to go against the grain worked out pretty well for him in the end, huh!

    I would imagine that a fan club web site like this would have some way of contacting someone-a publicist or agent in his business who would look out for his interests with his fans?

    Sorry yrsago - Even though some of us have met various band members and other road crew, we don't have any special inside track. I do know that Glenn does receive his fan mail, but I guess the volume is too high for him to respond to it all. However, as a former Dondero alumnus, you may have as good a chance as any in getting a response if you want to give it a try. The contact information I can give you is ...
