Jack Ruby, by Josh Alan Friedman

“Whenever the striptease dancers came out, he’d want the musicians to turn our backs, ’cause these were white ladies. But the strippers would insist that the drummer watch them so he could catch their bumps and grinds. So, Jack says, ‘Well, the drummer can look, but the rest of you guys, you turn your backs on the bandstand.’”
- David "Fathead" Newman
