It’s always interesting to see who in the public eye will comment on a celebrity death…and what kind of memories those who pass away leave behind. Bob Dylan and Tom Morello shared interesting stories about Muhammad Ali after his death over the weekend.
Bob Dylan wrote on his personal website:
“If the measure of greatness is to gladden the heart of every human being on the face of the earth, then he truly was the greatest. In every way he was the bravest, the kindest and the most excellent of men.”
As for Tom Morello, he shared a story that dates back to when he was nine years old…imagine being on this plane:
“I met Muhammad Ali on an Air Jamaica flight when I was 9…He said over the intercom: ‘I’m Muhammad Ali and I’m flying this airplane. But don’t worry cause I’m the greatest at flying airplanes too. Now, I’m sure you all want my autograph so I’m gonna come down the aisle and sign all your stuff.’ And he did. I have the signed Air Jamaica ticket to this day…Muhammad Ali did the rarest of things; he fearlessly blended his convictions with his vocation,”. “How many in the public eye today dare do the same? Few.”
