Makes me very sad. He was one of the greats. Really wish I would have caught his show at the Greek a few years back. RIP.

OH FUCK. I didn't even realize he was sick.
God damn it. He was fucking great.

He was my bosom buddy friend to the end, one of the last true great spirits of my or any other generation. This is just so sad to talk about. I still can remember the first day I met him and the last day I saw him. We go back pretty far and had been through some trials together. I'm going to miss him, as I'm sure a whole lot of others will too.
Cool that Bob put out a statement; I don't believe that's usually his kind of thing.

He was an original. R.I.P.

interview that combines two interviews from 1993 and 2007 (http://www.npr.org/2012/04/20/150886425/levon-helm-the-2007-fresh-air-interview), and he talks about The Band, his life, and solo album at the time.

I didn't see this until now. My dreams will be scarred.

i'm just wondering who will be next, since it always happens in 3s... him and dick clark... any predictions?

This kinda hurts. Music From Big Pink was one of the first albums I used to soundtrack my descent into madness. Trite as it is, I Shall Be Released was one of the songs I played in the hospital room before we killed Pops.

Apparently John Fogerty came out with The Black Keys last night to do a cover of The Weight? Is this confirmed? Fuck me.

Confirmed. yep. Score one for weekend 2.

Motherfuckers. Hmm, this is interesting... since Stagecoach is next weekend, there might be a higher incidence of surprise appearances of country-type motherfuckers for Weekend 2 that Weekend 1 didn't get. This whole two Coachellas thing is very emotionally confusing.

Can I get some photos of you with today's newspaper? I've got a forced suspension chamber company to sue.

Only if I can be fully nude.
And dangling over the front of the paper, right next to the date, so my best feature can't be cropped out.

That would actually be really helpful, thanks. The technician promised me that he'd piranha your genitals at no extra charge if I sprung for the high-feature model instead of the one that was included with my Groupon. Is it cool if I post a picture of your clearly non-mutilated lady area on Yelp? I don't want anybody else to get swindled.

If by "piranha," you mean "nibbled at with love and affection," then I thank you for paying most of this board to piranha my genitals.
