That generation is passing into history quickly.
"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means."

- Thomas Jefferson

He obviously loved music, I don't recall any footage of him where he isn't happy and smiling, and he seemed to be that way naturally.

For his era he was the right guy at the right place at the right time.

Irrumabo!  GOP? - Nope. No more. They made their bed, now let them die in it.*
