Money, who needs it.
Let me live a life free and easy.
Put the toothbrush in my hand,
And let me be a travelin’ man.
I’m a road runner, baby.
Junior Walker (June 14, 1931 – November 23, 1995)

Junior Walker 1931-1995. Rolling Stone, 1/25/96 Issue 726, p 28:
His influence lives on today in the brash, raucous playing of Maceo Parker and Clarence Clemons. "Junior Walker and King Curtis were the two biggest influences on me," says Clemons. "All those jazz cats were too abstract for me; Junior was more animated, and he got straight to the point. He knew it wasn't how many notes you play but what each note says -- quality, not quantity."
