    Per Rolling Stone's twitter account ( http://twitter.com/#!/RollingStone ):

    Wow. This is shocking, if this is accurate and true.

    Ah, shit.

    Saw them a couple of years ago when they had a rocking chair onstage for Clarence. Next time, it was gone, and I thought, "Whew!"

    Ah, shit.

    Get better.

    Saw the Red Bank Rockers at a small club a block from Wrigley Field in about 1982. Awesome.
