Dan over at Slowly Going Bald wrote a nice piece about it.
But I have not been able to articulate my feelings yet. So, here goes nothing:
First off, it sucks that LeRoi Moore is dead. He was all of 46 years old, and that's a tremendous loss for his family and friends.
It makes me sad to think that six short years ago, it was not officially "SUMMER!" until Shayna and I had loaded up the Beetle and taken a tour of Texas, seeing several shows as we went. And now, no one will ever see that incarnation of that band that way again.
It's not like I knew him. It's not like we were friends. I still can't help but feel a loss now that a founding member of a band I once adored has died.
Please to enjoy one of my top ten songs, #41:
