My good friend Preston Jackson (a reputable trombonist himself) thought Vic 
was amazing. He'd first played against him in a battle of bands in New York 
about 1931- Vic was with Speed Webb and Preston was with Louis Armstrong. He 
said: "That man drank like a fish and played great trombone. Here it is forty 
years later and he's still drinking like a fish and playing great trombone. I 
don't know how he does it."
