Waterboy-In-Chief Mike Scott Was Once Blown Away By The Gospel At A South Side Chicago Church

From the YouTube channel of Selectively Mute this week:

"The wonderful Mike Scott was doing a bit of a book signing at Readings Bookstore in Carlton, Australia. He was reading antidotes from his new autobiography Adventures Of a Waterboy. In this video he talks about his experience visiting a gospel church in Chicago."


Paradise Baptist, hard along Muddy Waters Drive.
