Thanks for the tip of the hat to King Coleman. I played keyboard/organ for his final tour in 2005 with The Creepy T's (his band). We played Baltimore, N.J., New York City and other places until a car accident on I-95 took the lives of some of the people in a band we were supposed to play with.

King Coleman will be missed greatly. As King often said himself, "ashes to ashes, dust to dust, hit 'em in the head with a cornbread crust!" He knew a lot of dirty jokes for a pastor.

King was also MC at the Apollo in the '60s and can be heard intro'ing the acts on several live records from that time.
