My condolences Ringo. It sounds like she will be sorely missed.

Things will be hard, I know. I wish you all the best.


Could there be any greater conceit, than for someone to believe that the universe has to be simple enough for them to be able to understand it ?

Re: Michael Collins, 90
I am lucky enough to have picked up in box lots at auction 2 different michael collins autograph. One was a box lot of cape Kennedy memorabilia where a pamphnet that was a 1 year anniversary political piece was signed by not only Micheal Collins, but Buzz Aldin and Neil Armstrong. The other was from the estate of a publisher that publish4d Micheal Collins book, and he autographed a copy to the two publishers.

Patrick Sky, 77
Patrick Sky - Wikipedia has his birth year as 1940, making him 80 instead 77 at death.

from Eric Andersen:
Well, today's a big, big sad day for me personally and all us songwriter music lovers. The dark? Well, he finally got there and the "yet" was removed early this morning. Patrick Sky the songwriter, singer, and Irish Uilleann bagpipe luthier and builder has left this world into the light from a hospice in Ashville, North Carolina, but didn't leave us for good. Songs like spirits always remain behind.

You were my label-mate at Vanguard Records. With his loving novelist and musician wife Cathy and devoted son Liam by his side, and keeping tight grips on his hand these past weeks, a hand finally slipped free, and the angels carried Pat Sky away. I recorded (as many others did) his great song "Many a Mile" and in the 60's Village, he and Buffy St. Marie and Peter LaFarge (Ira Hayes) were close friends in more ways than one.

They all shared Native American descent. Pat's was Cherokee from Georgia. He once fashioned a beautiful Indian mouth bow for Buffy which I hope she still plays. Pat was also close friends to the great Dave Van Ronk also known as (the "Mayor of McDougal Street.")
They were musical drinking pals at the Kettle of Fish and Pat had always had a very keen, irreverent, barbed, droll sense of humor. A brilliant mind and an insightful soul. But you couldn't take the business hassles of the music scene anymore.
Last time we were together was doing a concert together at the University of Virginia and were interviewed for radio by Jeff Place of the Smithsonian Institute. Afterwards, we retired to your and Cathy's comfy mobile home and sat in the dark in chairs outside, drinking beers, and wondering what happened to whom and where did so and so go? You were always curious and full of keen questions. I am still planning to record your great song "Nectar of God.”

Heard the rumor just confirmed by your son Liam. Joni Mitchell's song "Last Time I Saw Richard" was of course about Pat. Anyway, we are sending you big love and deep thanks for honoring us with your life and your music dear amigo, Patrick Sky, now be safe on your journey back home. Don't forget us.

Edited by AdminPhat, : added picture

Edited by xongsmith, : too many other sites and people say he was born in 1943.

Re: Patrick Sky, 77 (not 80)
there seems to be some disagreement with his birth year. some list it as 1943, which means he was 77.

thanks for the picture, Phat. that seems to be from his site - one of those disagreeing.

there are too many other sides and family members who say he was 77.

so i'm caving in.

Edited by xongsmith, : change to 1943
