I went to the viewing of Mario Canonico today and it was a special opportunity to meet his family and learn more about this great man who I have interacted with musically for years. For instance, I learned that he was a barber. Funny, as I have been looking for a decent hair stylist in Newmarket for years. I sat for a while at the funeral home and just took-in the pictures of the family. Sometimes we hurry to the gig and hurry home but Mario's passing made me think that I should take more time to inquire about my colleagues' family, hobbies and dreams.
