" shut up & shoot "

in 1988, gary gruby photographed minnesota fats in nashville, TN. when asked if he would wear a tuxedo for the portrait, mr. fats replied " no, putting a tuxedo on me is like putting whip cream on a hot dog ". look @ the concentration on this guy's face. this picture is my christmas present from gary. thanks!
