Dies in his sleep at home, aged 89. It's been a bad few weeks for music legends.

Kings especially.

 

Don better eat right, y'feel me?

Just shows a life of excess doesn't necessarily mean an early death.

 

RIP

Aye I was just thinking before, you don't see many blokes his size nearly hitting 90.

Just mentioned seeing him in concert at the HOB in Chicago.

 

He worked ridiculously hard, was touring round Europe until a few years ago and had a residency at the HOB. He was a classy performer, full of charm and engaging with the audience. RIP.

His patter live was mint. He managed to make joke lines that he must have said literally thousands of times still sound like he was saying them for the first time.

Aye, watched a one on Sky Arts the other month and the calibre of guest guitarist he had was mint - top pros like Derek Trucks and Slash and he sat there slagging them off for the most of it.

 

 

''Now Derek...I've told you, that's too fast, slow it down''
