Elmo, when you Google "Gus Dupree," this thread shows up at #3 on the search results.
I remember hearing this name before, but without searching, I could not tell you who Dupree was.
From Wikipedia's Keith Richards article:
Richards's paternal grandparents were socialists and civic leaders. His maternal grandfather (Augustus Theodore Dupree), who toured Britain in a jazz big band called Gus Dupree and his Boys, was an early influence on Richards's musical ambitions and got him interested in playing guitar.
Perhaps without Dupree, we may not have this message board right now.
