https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xioodawa4jo — “I Could Be Persuaded” – The Bellamy Brothers – Filmed at Seaside, FL, in 1992. Jay is the sax “player.” He’s just fingering the song since the track had already been laid down when the video was made. Notice his long, skinny fingers – the only thing he inherited from me.
