I remember when I first met him in high school, he was up in Chicago recruiting and visited our music dept at Chicago Vocational. Also met him when we played SU during football games.....

You shole right. Never forget the time Doc put Foster on the speaker phone for us to hear them go at it. LOL.

R I P to the Legend. Never will he be duplicated. One of a kind. Taught all of us who played under him a lot of valuable lessons. I still carry one of his sayings with me at all times. "You can't be as good as, you have to be better than"

He was like a second father for many of us and like a father to those who didn't have one in their lives. Folks will never understand just how much he meant to us who came through under him.

He was the original "Most Interesting Man in the World" LOL. You had to have known him to understand. At least you experienced Doc for a moment to see some of it.

PLOW!

Now that you mentioned it, I wonder would the ex-band members from New Orleans do a second line funeral in honor of Doc Greggs. One of Doc Greggs signature trade marks were combining the big band sound with the sounds of New Orleans second line brass bands, which made SU band very unique.

Yes! You didn't have to be in the band to know that. He was the inventor of swagger. R.I.P Dr. Greggs.

I was on the phone with my daughter today and she literally blurted out, "OH NO!" It scared me because I thought she'd gotten hurt, but she said "Dr. Greggs passed away!". She met him when he came to Mr. Knighten's homegoing services at SU. She said he had a quiet but commanding presence and so many former students, alumni, faculty were lining up to greet him & speak to him.

Prayers for the Greggs family, the SU family and the Jukebox family. I didn't attend SU but I know Dr. Greggs made a lasting impression on SU & influenced so many lives.

Forever Rest in Peace Dr. Greggs!

Doc will be missed... His Candor, Instruction, and overall views on life were unmatched. I'm glad I was able to hang out with Doc, one last time, my Frat Bro (AphiA) at the Jackson State/Southern game last year at Mumford. My son & I sat right next to him during the game... with his wife and son....Doc began to educated my Son on how education was important, especially that fact that my son, Brennen should become Alpha Man like he and I. Of course, he asked what instrument he likes to play. :lol:
The Look in Docs' eyes as the Human Jukebox turned in formation as they faced the Home side of the field...... He began to Cry.... :cry:

It has always been amazing to see the Joy in his heart as he listened to the sounds of Greatness that he actually created. Doc touched soo many lives. Not only the Human Jukebox members, but the world, including me.

RIP Bro. Dr. Isaac P. Greggs

R.I.P.:angel2: When I was marching in the SOD in the mid 70's, SU and Doc were the only band that Griff worked us overtime in preparation.:bowdown:

RIP DOC! "Its gonna be alright, I assure you of that... " He took us from boys to men, and taught so much more than just music! We learned life listening to Doc whisper. Because when what you're saying has substance, there is no need to holler! I miss him already...:cry:

I've always admired Dr. Greggs and the Human Jukebox. His reputation was legendary up in North Louisiana where I grew up. He will surely be missed.
