Re: "Hooley"

by Glenda Childress

It's entirely believable that Hooley may have encouraged the nickname, or at least found it agreeable, just because it also means "Lip" in Finnish. A trumpeter with a good embouchure wouldn't mind being called "The Lip" or "Lip" at all (cf. Hot Lips Page and others.)
