Here's the place to talk about our departed loved ones -- friends, family members, tour buddies, and others we've lost along the way.
passed away yesterday of complications from a heart attack. One of the originals, founder of Big Brother and the Holding Co. and helped get Janis her start. Thanks Sam.
Our poet has left us.
"It doesn't matter who you love, or how you love, but that you love." The flight plan for today is smooth sailing to the promised land.
"like a steam locomotive, rolling down the tracks....."
Joe Cocker, 1944-2014
RIP Rock Scully, what a guy. The heart of Gold band must have needed a manager. Jerry, John and Rock together again.
Thanks for noting this marye. R.I.P. RR
So sorry to learn of the passing of this guy, whose sax work on Gerry Rafferty's Baker Street is one of my favorite things of all time.
Our Captain of Laughter has left us all a bit depressed, wish he could've left us laughing but depression is rough. I could tell you all about it but it would just make you depressed.
I'm just a believer that things will get better
Good while he lasted. A very sad day indeed, Bob Weir cancels all remaining 2014 concerts and 2015 Jamaica show with furthur. You will be missed Bobby, it must have been difficult for you to reach this decision, who has been touring and playing on the road for 50 years. I know that playing in the band is your life and without it we hope you can find peace and stay with us for many many more years.
As I have said before, I don't care if you never play again, just please take care of yourself for your own sake and that of your family, they need you more than any of us fans.
I do not want to see your name on this thread now or in the near future.
Funniest man who ever lived, fastest mind in the world, I don't believe in what they all say about suicide, I know you are in Heaven. Lots of thunder last night, it was all the angels laughing.
Robin really made us laugh. What a gift he was. And is.
As Bobby said after Lowell George died (in 1979, he dedicated the GD's second set at the Portland Raceway to Lowell) "he was good while he lasted".
The Truth is realized in an instant, the act is practiced step by step.
