Gets yakety with the sax and the "links"
Listen to dB Hawkings playing the note ping out on the links - mp3 - opens new window
Our man “dB” honed his musical talents in childhood by playing saxophone in the school band, and conducting KEMAR recordings for warble tones during recess. After a bout with puberty, he decided to play something more “manly” and learned to make “the links” hum, mostly because of his enjoyment of one musical note: “ping.” As an adult, his public saxophone appearances have been limited to his daughter’s birthday parties; however, his performances on “the links” were numerous, and progressed to the U.S. Senior Open.
