I heard “Feliz Navidad” on the radio the other day, since it is that time of year. and it made me think of my friend, Chuck Walton, who used to sing it to me.
my birth name is Laurice and he used to sing: “Laurice Navidad….Laurice Navidad…” etc. to this day he is the one and only person who’s ever done that to me.
the only other occurrence of this is when I was hanging out at McGuire’s in AC and the one and only Michael Dixon (from Bangor, Ireland) used to sing along when the jukebox would play The Clash’s “Death or Glory” and sang instead: “Death or Lauree”
