Belated Farewell

I just found out that singer/songwriter Mickey Newbury died at age 62. Probably best known for his songwriting but he had a wonderful voice and an extensive catalog of excellent recordings. I have been a fan since the first recordings and one or more of his recordings are always included in my listening sessions. I have always found it interesting that even though I never met him, I feel like I know him through his words and music. I feel like I lost a long time friend. If you haven't heard him,his catalog is available at My condolence to his family and friends. Thank you for the words and music Mickey, I will miss you.
Warren Zevon is dying of terminal cancer, another talented and often overlooked musician. Fortunately he's working on one last album to be released late spring/early summer of 2003.
It's interesting how people we don't know can touch us by opening up and sharing who they are. I wasn't aware of the site you mention. Thanks.
