I guess it's only natural that gents who spend a lot of time playing or 
listing to music in beer halls would wander into confusion over dicks and 
johns, but no, it was a John Doner, who played trombone and doubled on 
flute (don't ask why), who moved from here to Florida in the early '80s.

We gave him a hell of a sendoff:  A big party at Northern Virginia's 
favorite jazz joint, which burned down later that night, never to go back 
into business.
