Sad news, the passing of an old friend: Albert von Schweikert, and an amusing story. NP may want to chime in.

Albert was always charming and self effacing and full of stories. One in particular he took great delight in repeating.

Apparently he and Nelson were both in attendance at a music event, and Albert engaged NP in conversation. And as Albert told the story Nelson was in the usual casual attire with ball cap and sunglasses.

Albert in spite of being good friends with Nelson, mistook Nelson for someone in the music industry, a musician of some note. And Nelson was far too amused to not let it go on for a spell

After awhile Nelson pulls the sunglasses down and with a grin sez: ALBERT IT'S ME!
At which point, Albert relating the story has tears of laughter running down his cheeks and is laughing so hard he has to sit down and get his breath.

Albert's laughter and sparkle was and remains infectious....

I know very little of Albert von Schweikert's speaker business and all of that is specious to his passing.

Albert had a smile that would light up the room. I never heard him speak disparagingly of anyone.

And that's not a bad legacy to leave
