I love u so much and look forward to celebrating many more. His approach to the guitar has given birth to an entire generation of guitar players who look at the guitar as an instrument with unlimited possibilities.
Early life[ edit ] Anderson was born in Oakland, California. His father, "Big Ed" Anderson, was a minstrel performer, while his mother, Ella Mae, had been a tightrope walker until her career was ended by a fall.
He left school when he was 14 to work as an errand boy to help his family. During one of his vaudeville tours to the East Coast, Anderson first met Jack Benny; the men only exchanged greetings and shook hands. The newsboys believed those who were able to shout the loudest sold the most papers.
The permanent damage done to his vocal cords left him with the gravel voice familiar to both radio listeners and television viewers over a course of more than twenty years. Benny liked the idea of the sketch enough to wire California to find someone for the role of the train porter before the show script was actually finished.
Benny's first choice for the role was Oscar, the shoeshine man on the Paramount studios lot. Benny thought this was too much money and the role went to Eddie Anderson.
During this appearance, Anderson made himself at home on the program, joining in the Jell-O commercial with the regulars of the cast.
A few weeks later, Anderson was called back once more, now for the part of a "colored fellow" who had a financial disagreement with Benny. Benny decided to make him part of the cast as his butler and valet, Rochester van Jones. Subsequent episodes gave different "origin stories" for Rochester.
One radio show guest starred Amos 'n' Andywhere the skit showed that Rochester used to work for them as a taxi cab driver. Benny and Rochester collide their cars, in which Benny is clearly at fault as Rochester's car was way up on a grease rack.
The racial inequality of the respective parties is explicitly referenced, and Amos 'n' Andy essentially give Rochester to Benny to settle the matter out of court.
Benny enlisted some of the cast members to drop in on him just before travel dates to make sure he would be ready to go on time. Most of the time he was not, and there were times the other cast members would need to leave without Anderson with them. The Andersons arrived at the Los Angeles train station just as the Super Chief pulled out with the rest of the radio program's cast on it.
Breaking the speed limit with an LAPD motorcycle squad escort, Anderson arrived at the Pasadena train station in time to catch his train from there. InAnderson was invited to a Harvard University smoker but was detained by students from rival Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
The comedian was met at the airport by MIT students who claimed they were on the Harvard committee. When it was discovered why Anderson was late to the Harvard gathering, a riot broke out as students from the two schools began fighting over the incident.
Benny is supposed to be a big comedian At the time of his success on the Benny radio show, the community thought of him as one of their own and was proud of his rise to stardom. The reality of an African-American mayor of Los Angeles would not come in this era; for many years, those living in the Central Avenue area had held mock elections, with the winner being known as "the Mayor of Central Avenue".
The title holder had both the right and the duty to speak up about issues affecting the local African-American community.
