When Richard Sudhalter was in Davenport a few years ago, several people, including Flemming, brought books written by Richard for him to sign.
(The gentleman with dark glasses behind Flemming is Joe Giordano).
After the seminar was over and all books signed, I went to Richard and mentioned to him that several people had mentioned to me that "Man and Legend" had a profound impact in their lives. Richard's answer: "I did not know that." Richard did not write the book to create Bix fans, it was a scholarly attempt to provide an accurate account of Bix's life and music.
