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.
may the four winds blow him safely home.
Some of you may remember Jimi C, who was a regular here for a while. Sad to report that he died peacefully yesterday after a long fight with cancer, during which he remained brave and good humoured to the end. I know his very European ironic and offbeat style was sometimes misunderstood by some here, but he was a dear sweet funny man who will be greatly missed. Tiger Lilly also formerly of this place) got to visit Jimi in England in July, which meant a lot to both of them. Sad.
Heres to Jerry your music continues to soothe my soul, brings tears to my eyes and makes me happy all in one crazy glorious way that nothing else can do. Such a long long time to be gone and a short time to be there.
Hi Jerry, miss you. Wish you were here.
