Comment: W. C. Handy Walking in Memphis

t was interesting to learn the meaning of the names in the song, but one wasn’t explained… who is “Reverend Green?”ThanksSamAlthough I can’t find an explicit answer, most sources claim it’s a reference to soul great Al Green, who has been a minister at the Full Gospel Tabernacle in Memphis since 1974. Guess I shoulda mentioned that in the original article, eh?
