Right on. I was very saddened to learn this today. I became a fan around 1978 or so, but in recent years hadn't followed his music.

A talking machine might be the closest you'll get to a time machine.

He used to be on SNL many years ago. Not really my style of music, but saddened by the loss. :rose:

What I've heard is that his "illness" was dementia. :x

I saw him in concert in a mid-size theater a little more than 20 years ago, it was a lively show. On The Track is a classic.

I saw hime once in person also--very low key. Also picked up a 78rpm vinyl 10 inch 78 that he issued in 1978--Kinda Cool. Mark

I enjoyed his quirky take on period tunes. A friend of mine toured with Redbone for a while and taught him some classic vaudeville routines, which they did between songs. He will be missed
