Tony Glover, 79 & Leon Redbone, 69
two of my folk heroes.

only Spider John is still alive of the great trio, Koerner, Ray & Glover and Leon always had a great stage solo presence.

More from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tony_Glover & https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leon_Redbone

I was hoping others would beat me to this thread, but...this is a twofer.

Re: Tony Glover, 79 & Leon Redbone, 69
Always liked Redbone. Always assumed he was older. But I think that was part of his schtick and mystique

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

Rip Torn - February 6, 1931 – July 9, 2019

Veteran actor from many movies and television. Probably best known for the Larry Sanders Show.

And probably the coolest name in Hollywood.

I learned from another article on him that "Rip" was a nickname all the male members of his family gave themselves.

Losing them all. The First was Charlie Byrd. Long long ago in a land far far away I used to share a coffee with Mr. Byrd between sets in DC.
