-We start with 3 from Adam Schlesinger, driving force of Fountains of Wayne. Jonah and I saw FOW at House of Blues. We stood in front of the stage.They burned the place down.Suburban punk? I don't know. But I loved every minute of that show. If you don't know them, buckle up and play it loud. RIP
-John Prine. Man, what a songwriter. I've been playing him nonstop since he passed away April 8. A poet. Put out 17 albums or something. Here are 2 from his first album, 1 from his last album after he went through lung cancer. Jason Isbell wrote about him in today's NY Times. Damn this disease.RIP
-Tom Rush. He's still with us, but sick with Covid. Two of his best. I'm a huge fan.
-Jackson Browne. Also sick. See above.
-Bill's signature song. Or one of them. He passed from heart failure, but believe me, he had a big, generous heart. RIP
(I left off Alan Merrill "I Love Rock n' Roll" and Ellis Marsalis, both gone from C-19) RIP
Take care. Stay sane. Stay inside.
