Oh. :(
His philosophy was a mixture of three famous schools -- the Cynics, the Stoics and the Epicureans -- and summed up all three of them in his famous phrase, 'You can't trust any bugger further than you can throw him, and there's nothing you can do about it, so let's have a drink."

What a beautiful voice he had!
When the night has been too lonely, and the road has been too long,
And you think that love is only for the lucky and the strong,
Just remember in the winter far beneath the bitter snows,
Lies the seed, that with the sun's love, in the spring becomes The Rose.

I’ll miss her. I love that group, and I loved her voice.

RIP Art Neville, the eldest of the great Neville Brothers, and also was of the founding members of the classic New Orleans funk band The Meters.

Thanks for all the great music, Art. You will be missed.

Robert Hunter, the brilliant poet who wrote the lyrics to most of the Grateful Dead's classic songs, including virtually all of the songs cowritten and sung by Jerry Garcia, has joined his brother Jerry in the Band of Heaven. There is no way that I can overstate the influence that Robert Hunter's words have had on my life.

Fare thee well, and thank you!

I was never particularly a fan of Rush, though I didn't dislike the popular songs that I heard on the radio growing up. I for some reason had no idea that they had a song called Rivendell, with the lyrics written by their drummer and main lyricist, Neil Peart, who just passed away.

RIP Eddie Van Halen. I was never a fan, but there is no question that he was an iconic figure in popular music.
