We were talking about this guy elsewhere, last night and earlier, and though it's not quite as sweltering as it was then, I am going to repost this, because it's cocktail hour, and because it suddenly occurred to me how time flies and how the things you love can go away, just like that.
I turned down free tickets to see this man more than once, believe it or not, because I was in the biz back then, didn't want to take the night off from work, and thought, "Eh.* Great as he is? He'll be around forever."
'Nuff maudlinin'. Play loud. And thank the FSM we at least have ways to record such moments.
* [Added] Actually, given that at the time of said offers I was living in the Biggest Little State in the Union, it is more likely that instead of saying Eh I said Aaaayyyyyyyyy.
