Dan Hicks has passed away.

This is getting really sad...

Boy, Dan Hicks was something special.  Saw him with a Hot Licks Reunion in the 90's and with a different group of sidemen years later.  So much talent and so very funny--maybe the funniest frontman I've ever seen.  Adios, Dan--thanks for all the great times.
One of my favorite song titles ever, "How can I miss you if you won't go away?"
We'll miss you Dan. 
R.I. P Dan. I think I have all of the Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks albums, including the last one. Saw them perform at Wolf Trap in DC. Great show, and I still have his albums on my regular playlist.
