The Greenspan controversy reminds me that Chrysler Chairman Lee Iacocca was
also once a tenor sax player.

My former boss in Denver's Hot Tomatoes Dance Orchestra, Ron Cope (RIP) was
never one to miss a marketing opportunity. After reading Iacocca's first
autobiography, Ron sent a letter offering to have him sit in with the band
whenever he was in Denver.

Iacocca replied that he hadn't touched his axe in several decades, but he
was kind enough to plug the band in his follow-up book.

Paul Edgerton,
who would have been (temporarily) out of a gig.
