new coworker was a music nut, too

About 3 years ago - a new guy came to our firm and at some point we started talking about music. We quickly got on the subject of Santana and this guy had encyclopedic knowledge of Santana's early work. I was soooo stoked to finally have a coworker that I could talk music with. The next day we start talking more about music . . and he starts talking about Ottmar Liebert . . . and he won't shut up about Ottmar Liebert. Turns out he only listens to one old Santana alblum and lots and lots of Ottmar Liebert. Ottmar Liebert Ottmar Liebert Ottmar Liebert Ottmar Liebert Ottmar Liebert oh god . . it was awful. We didn't have anything to talk about. It was like getting a giant present on Christmas and finding a turd inside. So sad.

Luckily I now work with a guy with a ton of great music stories, like he was once in a taxicab with Tom Waits the first time Tom Waits ever heard himself on the radio. And he's never once mentioned Ottmar Liebert!
