Bay Area folks who knew him from BGP (you saw him on stage many times...) will be sorry to know that he's gone. He passed on a few days ago; this article from last year will give you an idea of what he was like and the various doings of him and his brother Bob. I got to meet them once or twice. They were great.
poor old soul. i just saw that on the news this morning.
how incredible nature is and let it continue to be so.
This sad old gentleman has died, and with him his species. Here's hoping after his long lonely wait that he finds a mate in the hereafter.
Ray Bradbury passing means that all of the favorites from my youth -- Asimov, Bradbury, Clarke, Heinlein, Herbert -- have gone from this mortal world.
Twilight Zone (that was Rod Serling, kids, greaaat stuff).
Teachers open the door, but you must enter yourself.
of Fahrenheit 451, but he also wrote the film script for Moby Dick, which I never knew. Wotta guy.
To Merlefest this year (scheduling conflict), despite the nagging voice in the back of my head reminding me that Doc probably didn't have many years left. I should have listened to the voice.
RIP Doctor Watson I presume. You made our world a better place.
Better late than never to the table -- one of the greats.
i too just wanted to chime in on doc's passing. my first exposure to doc was on the nitty gritty dirt band's album, will the circle be unbroken. this timeless classic exposed me to an entire world of music, which i'm still hooked on to till this day. i was aware of the dead, but not until a few years later, and blues for allah, did i hear that 'other' element that, for me, is the dead. i guess i was in like 7th grade, and when i heard some of circle, i was mesmerized. it was my good fortune to have seen doc play live on many occasions, maybe as many as 10, including the doc and dawg tour with grissman. he was just one of my all-time favorites, and i am so glad he shared his unique talent with us. rip doc...
that's for sure.
