Lynn did not blow his chops out. He had some problems a long time ago because he took some time off the horn and was expecting to be able to play as he normally does. Which he finally go to doing. I didn't know about the Bill Adam thing though. He didn't mention anything like that. I'll post up some pictures of him when I saw him last. (2 weeks ago)When I get the pictures from my friend that is.


I really want to get the Maynard DvD. No money though. No job... too young to work NOOOOOO


It is only $10, get real. Go cut somebody's grass.

If trumpetstuff.com is back up, check the video of Stan Mark on "America's Funniest Home Videos." He's playing some high passage and then passes out, taking out some of the band.

Anyways, Lynn is considered by many to have been the next Maynard. He's got the sound, the technique, the range, endurance, and everything. I have the At the Top DVD and I'm constantly amazed at how he holds the trumpet in the palm of his left hand so lightly, yet he could drown out the entire band with his double C if he turned on the jets.

I was at an American Legion Hall dance band gig yesterday in Yorkville, IL (WAY out in the Boonies). This older gentleman and I were talking trumpet for quite a while, and I was really impressed with his knowledge of Maynard and his "screech trumpeters" as he called them. I asked his name and he said, "Amos Nicholson, my son Lynn played with Maynard a long time ago." He then pulled out his wallet and showed me a bunch of pictures of Lynn playing! What a small world-

Lynn was studying with Doc Reinhardt at the same time as I was back in the mid-late 70's. Doc said he was having some chop trouble Doc attributed to his becoming a vegetarian . I didn't and still don't know quite what to make of that.


It actually makes a lot of sense.

Three years ago I had surgery to remove some damaged leg muscle.
The nurse told me to eat lots of high-quality protein so that my body could use the protein in re-building / replacing the muscle that was removed.

A lack of enough high-quality protein would prevent or slow the re-building of damaged tissue.

So if Lynn was routinely damaging his lips while playing (as biographies indicate for 1977),
but Lynn was not eating enough high-quality protein in his vegetarian diet,
then that would have prevented or slowed the healing of Lynn's lips.

A biography states that it took a full decade for Lynn's lips to heal:

“Lynn Nicholson began playing Lead Trumpet at The Dunes in Las Vegas in 1977 and damaged the vibrating service of his chops early. Lynn played through the damage for the next decade, after which his lip finally healed. Lynn relates that he never "lost his chops" just lots of tiny pieces of the vibrating surface. Lynn states that there is still some visible scarring as a result. Efficient use of air is a double edged sword.”
http://www.trumpetplayersdirectory.com/trumpetplayerlynnnicholson.html

If the "next decade" means 1977-1987, that indicates that it took approximately 10 years for Lynn's lips to heal.
But if "next decade" means the 1980's,
and that biography says that Lynn stopped playing in 1992,
then Lynn's lips might have finally healed near when Lynn stopped playing.
Either way, the extreme time it took Lynn's lips to heal indicates an inability of the tissue to heal for some serious reason(s).
Continued abuse of the tissue?
Poor nourishment?
Some other reason?

???

Lynn played with Maynard in 1974.

I quoted a biography above that says that Lynn was playing lead trumpet at the Dunes in Vegas in 1977 when Lynn damaged his lips.

The last paragraph of my post was the only edit.
The quote and Web link before that were already in the post that you read and responded to.
So I have no idea why you posted what you did.

Errrrrrrrrrrrrr ... I found him ... errrrrrrrrrr ... playing it ... not just talkin it - LMAO


Link


Argggggggggg ... utilizing his "MF Protocal" and playing on Roger Ingram's newest MF mouthpiece ... a copy of Maynard's piece from the 50's.

I sure wish "the gang" hadn't ran Lynn off ... I was enjoying his educational and informative post here and still love his videos on YouTube.com
