VAN PIANO MAN WALLS was said to be quite an eccentric as well as a great session pianist. His piano work included Chains of Love, 5-10-15 Hours and One Mint Julep where according to lead singer Buddy Bailey, he schlepped in wearing raincoat, sunglasses and Sherlock Holmes hat. And never took em off during the entire session. Cool dude.
