What a shame,I was just listening to his music today.
This one cuts deep, his music is basically the soundtrack to my life, it's been there for as long as I can remember. RIP John, I can't be left without a feeling that you still had some stories to tell me.
This is sad news.
Saw him in '82. Bruised Orange is a good album.
""If You Don't Want My Love" was an easy one to sing in the shower.
Joan Baez tribute:
Sorry to hear it. Just shed a tear listening to Sam Stone.
This one's a bit more upbeat, my brother had the band play this for the first dance at his wedding (he married well).
Saw him a couple of times over the years, he always closed with "Lake Marie". We gotta go now...
"When I get to heaven, I'm gonna shake God's hand
Thank him for more blessings than one man can stand
Then I'm gonna get a guitar and start a rock-n-roll band
Check into a swell hotel; ain't the afterlife grand?"
Lyrics to the last song on his last album.
