Mr. Collins Fan

Thank you for creating this article. I bought the trumpet Dick used to play. Its his '57 Conn. I have had the remarkable opportunity of talking with him from time to time on the phone. Some very funny stories of the old days. I am grateful you got this in print. He is a mostly unknown national treasure.
