His Uncle Sam


Erik Greene, nephew of Sam Cooke, left a gracious comment on our last post, Another Saturday Night. Mr. Greene is the author of Our Uncle Sam: The Sam Cooke Story From His Family’s Perspective, and you can find out more about him and the book at his website (which I’m adding to our link collection). I’m glad to have been able to widen Sam’s audience, and no doubt Mr. Greene feels that same pride, albeit on a larger scale. This post provides a reason for one more Sam Cooke video. This one is – no kidding! – Sam Cooke and Muhammad Ali, just having fun. Ali, as always, refers to himself as the greatest, but I’m sure he understood the exalted company he was keeping.
