Wasn’t familiar with him or with his band. Listened to his song. Loved his sound and lyrics. Elegantly titled “Home For A Rest”.  I have known other singers around the World who have died early and some knowing they will die soon, have written some of the most haunting songs. Their passing is a reminder to the rest of us.

Thanks for allowing me to appreciate it again for the first time through you.  And I couldn’t agree more.  Lyrics can bring the darkest of human sentiment to light through cryptically expressed poetry.  Music is the great unifier.
