Biscuit Inspired a Sense of Joy in All

RECEIVED Wed., Aug. 24, 2005

Dear Editor,
    I was 16 when Nathan Gates asked me to come down to Raul's to watch his brother's band record their first live album with the Dicks.
    A year later and I was playing trombone with Nathan in the Impromptu Horns with the Big Boys.
    Biscuit left me with a sense of the joy of being as weird as you are and enjoying it [“Making Biscuit,” Music, Aug. 19]. His legacy of joy and mischief and creativity lives on in all of us whose lives he touched.
    He encouraged art and spontaneity in expression and was a living example of this credo. Thanks for helping free the artist in us all, Biscuit.
