Screwy Louie

February 5, 2010

Strangely, it seems, many great jump and swing musicians are named Lou. There’s Louis Jordan, Louis Armstrong, and Louis Prima for example. Upon further contemplation, there are many other notable Lou’s. Lou Alcinder, Lou Gosset, Al Lewis, Louis Braille, Lou Costello, Lou Pasteur, Lou Carroll, Lou Ferrigno, Lou Gerrig, Lou Farrakan, and Lou Leakey. Now I probably have left out a few, but, it seems strange that this name is not more prevalent today, in light of this long list of greats. Makes ya think don’t it?
