The Wisdom of Nelson George

Always worth all the attention you can muster.

Also one of the most fun interviews I did at the Boston Phoenix. Book tour for the original Michael Jackson Story. A good exchange came after the official interview was over and we were walking past Fenway Park.

“I understand brothers don’t show up for games there,” said George.

“It’s true,” I replied.

“Why is that?”

“For all the sad reasons you can imagine.”

Appropriate stretch of dead silence.
