Just saw that.
So sorry to read that.I've always been a huge fan, ever since I read "Beatiful Losers" two years before he released his first album. "Sisters Of Mercy" is one of my favorite song and his performance is unforgettable.
He will be sorely missed. Was just listening to his newest cd yesterday.
I've listened to the CD several times. It's impressive.
For my money, next to Mr. Zimmerman. The second-best songwriter of the second half of the 20th century...
I think he knew he was near the end--and not just because he was 82. In the recent New Yorker article--which has a beautiful elegiac quality--he spoke of spending time getting his "papers in order". God, 2016 has really been a sh*tty year, hasn't it?
Yes, he wrote some wonderful lyrics.
