Sam, those Christmas parties were strange in one respect. The great musicians: Chet Atkins, the Scruggs's, Roy Acuff, John and their ilk, played on the ground floor. The not-quite-so-good went to the second floor and the also-rans went to the third. All were welcomed and none were scorned, but they sought their own level as if by gravity. I took my horn down there one time, by invitation, and quit after one tune. On the third floor!
