    Sad beyond my ability with words. One of the true geniuses of his art form. RIP.

    Yes, a legend all the way.

    Pure Prairie League had a great tribute song.

    Glad to say I saw him live (w/ Alabama and The Judds no less). A true country singer. Still find it amazing he was there in the audience during Johnny Cash's San Quentin concerts.
    RIP Hag.

    Damn. I had been telling my wife for years that I wanted to see Merle in concert, but I never did. At least I have the box set I can listen to.

    Reckon it's time to see Chuck Berry before it's too late with him, too.

    Saw him a number of times, last one being on the tour he did with Ray Price and Willie. Willie's the last one left.
