Quotes: Sammy Davis Jr.'s Musicians about the Book Project
 

“It was a delight for me to be asked by Florian Kerz to give a few of my wonderful memories of Sammy Davis, Jr. for his book. Also to have been able to perform and travel with him. I always felt that he was the best entertainer of the 20th Century.”

— Richard Eliot, guitarist, 1978/79 tours


“Having an email conversation with Florian is like talking to someone who was on tour with me and Mr. D, only he has a better memory! Being interviewed by him brought back some great memories of my time on tour with Sammy Davis, Jr. (November 1979—October 1989), he knew about concerts, venues and songs that we performed that I had forgotten about. I am truly grateful to Florian for compiling such a book so that one of the greatest entertainers' legacy will not be forgotten. Thanks."

— Frank Accardo, guitarist, 1979—1989, music professor in California


“Participating in this project brought back many wonderful memories of my two-and-a-half years traveling as drummer for Sammy Davis, Jr. No doubt there will be many thankful for Florian's efforts to help preserve the legacy of this great entertainer.”

— Rick Porrello, drummer, 1981—1983, author and police chief in Cleveland area
