He reminded me of the dancing bear.

My lil' dog Texas passed away today. He was 16 years old, he remembered the old days. God bless and keep our animal friends. Let's cherish them in the present and the past. Thanks for letting me share my loss. Cheers fellow music lovers!

Belated memorial: Chris Ethridge

Chris Ethridge died April 23, 2012, at 65, in Meridian, Mississippi from pancreatic cancer. Chris played bass guitar and was a member of The Flying Burrito Brothers, along w Gram Parsons, Byron Berline, Al Perkins, Sneaky Pete Kleinow and Chris Hilman. Hot Burrito #2 was one of his country rock compositions. I wore out my vinyl album "Last of the Red Hot Burritos", a live recording with "Don't Let Your Deal Go Down", "Six Days on the Road" and a good version of "Orange Blossom Special". His first band was the International Submarine Band, with Parsons and Hilman, evolving into the Burritos. Chris did a lot of studio work with many other musicians, like Ry Cooder, Leon Russell, Jackson Browne and Linda Ronstadt. He toured with Willie Nelson for a few years, too.

Spare a few thoughts please for the Cambodian environmental activist and very brave man, murdered this week by military police while he was documenting illegal logging. I worked with him a lot. His death is another sad blow to the protection of Cambodia's forests and to the fight against totalitarianism and kleptocracy.

just when life seems almost too unbearable, the rains come....

please take time out of your days ahead to offer healing, compassion, safe passage and guidance to one of the finest musicians who ever lived.

Levon Helm.

"Dear Friends,
Levon is in the final stages of his battle with cancer. Please send your prayers and love to him as he makes his way through this part of his journey.

Thank you fans and music lovers who have made his life so filled with joy and celebration... he has loved nothing more than to play, to fill the room up with music, lay down the back beat, and make the people dance! He did it every time he took the stage...

We appreciate all the love and support and concern.
From his daughter Amy, and wife Sandy".
