I sent Henry an email this morning, wishing him a happy 53rd birthday and sharing my reflections on the trajectory his career has taken since we first began corresponding well over a decade ago.
Henry, in his wry and endearingly brusque way, responded with thanks, his usual music suggestions, and this appraisal: “And look at you, all respectable-like. Citizen muckraker. Big daddy. Civic guy. A regular man of the people. Who knew?”
Well played, old man. Keep rocking and rolling.
