I’ve interviewed thousands of people over the years, some much more colorful than others.
But one I’ll always remember as one of the most colorful was the late newspaper humor columnist and standup comic Lerwis Grizzard.
Over a period of years, Grizzard wrote 25 books, with titles like “When My Love Returns From the Ladies Room, Will I Be Too Old to Care?” .. “You Can’t Put No Boogie-Woogie on the King of Rock & Roll” .. and “I Haven’t Understood Anything Since 1962”
One of my several interviews with him was on his book called, “Don’t Bend Over in the Garden, Granny, You Know Them Taters Got Eyes”
Lewis Grizzard died way too young, at age 47, in 1994.
