Best of luck to him. I have an uncle (by marriage) who, at 81, got a kidney transplant. It's been 1 year. We saw him on the 4th. He said some transplants are good for 30 years. He'll be happy with 10. He looks pretty good.
In the end, they will all pretty much taste the same.

Stevie Wonder is one of my favorites. For a long time.

I still have his early albums I bought in grade school - singing Great American Songbook standards.

One of this country's musical treasures. Back in 1981 or so, we went to a Stevie concert on the spur of the moment. I liked some of his music (hard not to like SOMETHING by someone who has been around for close to 20 years), but at the end of that show, I was a full fledged fan. One of the best I've ever seen, every note and beat was perfection.

His 70's output was astonishing...Talking Book, Innervisions, and Songs in the Key of Life are masterpieces, and Music of My Mind, Fulfillingness' First Finale, and 1980's Hotter Than July don't exactly suck, either.

May this procedure give us many more years of Wonder-ment.
