I’d like to wish Randy aka World Of Randsom a very happy birthday today. Randy was the first person in New York to become my friend when I moved to the Big Apple over 4 years ago and I am truly a better person for having met him. Amongst my close circle of friends, I’ve always been referred to as a walking music encyclopedia. When you talk to Randy, you will quickly realize he is not so much “AN encyclopedia of music knowledge,” as he is “THE encyclopedia of music knowledge.” His photos have been seen in Rolling Stone magazine, his name has appeared the CD booklets of artists such as Miles Davis, Jeff Buckley and Johnny Cash. Several times a year, he hosts exclusive “video parties,” where he shares some of his eclectic music knowledge in the form of rare video clips and these by invitation only events are always the hottest tickets in town. I’ve been prodding him and keeping my fingers crossed for an autobiography of all of his experiences, so if you see him, I ask you to do the same! Happy birthday Randy and many happy returns!
