I'd be the last to disturb Lucky Thompson's peace, I love his music way too much and I think I can understand just enough of his frustrations to figure out that he could not bear it any longer, not with the love for the music he always showed. I wish him a peaceful life whereever he is, hope he is cared for and will cherish his music forever.

Eli Thompson's lifelong nickname -- the byproduct of a jersey, given him by his father, with the word "lucky" stitched across the chest -- would prove bitterly inappropriate: when he was five, his mother died, and the remainder of his childhood, spent largely in Detroit, was devoted to helping raise his younger siblings. Thompson loved music, but without hope of acquiring an instrument of his own, he ran errands to earn enough money to purchase an instructional book on the saxophone, complete with fingering chart.
