Big Al told me to take my ass to Birdy's Live after Prince’s show at the Murat and if he didn’t, I would missed one of the greatest shows I’ve ever seen in my life.
Big Al would always talk to me about classic soul and funk. Big Al gave me a few crates of records that I own to this day. Big Al used to tell me to come to ‘The Joint’ boutique if I needed gear.
Big Al always looked out for me when y’all would be wildin at @birdmen_of_alcatraz shows. Big Al would stand in front of the monitors if he had to, just to make sure nobody got hurt.
Big Al was the MAN and a pillar of the community. I miss him greatly and may God bless his soul.
We love you, Big Al. We miss you, Big Al.
