i saw you once
at the Palace (now the Avalon) in hollywood.
you signed my journal afterwards and listened with painfully shy ears as people would come up and tell you how much your music meant to them.
you'd fade into and out of obscurity after touring for Figure 8, play a random gig now and then.
i was sort of worried about you, but figured you can take care of yourself.
i hate to say it, but i think a lot of people knew something like this would happen. we just didn't want to believe it.
those of us who loved and admired your work will miss you.
