    I have to plead ignorance when it comes to most of this gentleman's music but What A Wonderful World is a lovely song :grinthumb

    Definitely. I was just listening to it on pandora, and I figured a thread would be a perfect place to express my love for it and the artist in general. :)

    I bet he'd be a great time to just hangout with. I think he could offer a lot of knowledge judging on how early he was put onto this earth. His knowledge about things must have been quite vast.

    ^^Yeah you're dead right and I would be hanging on every word. IMO he has justifiable claim to be placed in the top three most influential musicians of the last century.

    Precisely. I wish more people would have been exposed to this music though. I got pretty lucky to have grandparents who enjoyed this stuff. Which in term, allowed me to be exposed to this artist. I thank them dearly for that.
