>You know you're a Kenny Rankin fan when:
You go to see George karlin bcause Kenny Rankin is opening act;
You stand in line in a snow storm to see Kenny at the Bottom Line, then do it all again because there are seats available for the 2nd show;
Your kids know who Kenny Rankin is, and now you sing his songs to their children.
