Bum Phillips (1923-2013)
On the morning of October 19, I watched the sunrise in New York and I swear for a moment the sky was painted Columbia blue, red, and white. Bum is in heaven now. As I looked out of my window thinking about Bum, I sat listening to the first 42 bars of “Retirement (two kinds of coaches)” that Peter Stopschinski recorded and sent to me the other day. I hope Bum is listening too. — Luke Leonard, Director
