Sad day for sure.

He fell before a concert a few days ago, reported that he injured his hip and was headed back to texas. He had to miss the next shows and had Elwood Francis in his place. I wonder if this was a complication from that.

RIP

Dusty was a step uncle to my best friends sister way back in the 70's.
We got to vist Dusty and them once in Houston, but, we didn't know what a ZZ top was!

Very sad. Losing too many good artists.

Rest however you want. You've earned it!

I've been thinking about how to swag out the exterior of my vehicle. This week I started thinking of a RIP list of musicians...
Jimi Hendrix
Janis Joplin
John Lennon

Ron "Pigpen" McKernan

Duane "Skydog" Allman

Jerry "Captain Trips" Garcia
Michael Hedges

Roger "Syd" Barrett
Richard Wright
Gregg Allman



...just off the top of my head. I'm quite sure there are so many more I want on the list. ZZ Top had some good stuff.

I actually came to tears when Jerry passed.



The worst part about being a vampire is seeing all the people you love, the bands you cherish, the cultures you become accustom to, grow old and die, then having to do it all again. Glad I'm not a vampire.

Don Henley is alive. Glenn Frey? Not so much.

Damn, I was thinking all the members of my favorite progressive rock bands were still alive (other than Squire), but Greg Lake died in 2016. Neal Peart, too, although I was never a huge Rush fan.
