'Pookie' (Johnny) ALWAYS had time for me, IF- I asked him... (Even when it wasn't convenient for him). 'Pookie' was a selfless, kind, honest, and generous person. I will never forget stopping by his house and begging him to play his guitar on a Saturday morning when it looked like he had about 3 hours of sleep the night before...?? I'd bang on his Door and say... 'Come on, 'Pookie'; play the guitar, Dood'-!!! He'd look at me and say... OK, Man... Come on in and he would have a HUGE JAM SESSION-!!!!!!! Johnny made playing the guitar (SEEM) SO EASY and natural for him... The Entire Corbett Family was (and is) such LOVEABLE PEOPLE-!!! Some people, you will just NEVER FORGET in life and Johnny 'Pookie' Corbett was one of 'em... I HOPE you and Jesus are having a Jam Session (RIGHT NOW)-!!!!!!! πŸ‘βœŒ
