Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. David "Fathead" Newman (February 24, 1933 - January 20, 2009) was an American saxophonist. Born in Corsicana, Texas, Newman's professional career as a musician began in 1954 as a member of the Ray Charles Band. Newman got his nickname in high school music class. Mr. Miller, his then music teacher, saw his music upside down on the stand, and knowing that Newman couldn't read music very well at the time, walked over and tapped him on his head with the conductor's baton and called him "Fathead." The entire classroom laughed and Newman, having good humor, did not find it derogatory. The name stuck with him, but he said he preferred to be called "David."show more
