    Yeah, I saw that and am sorry to hear that.

    While most will remember him as a country singer, which is how he preferred to be thought of, I always thought his best work was done with the First Edition.

    I guess he just dropped out to see what condition his condition was in.

    May he rest in peace.

    Jerry,

    I shouldn't have laughed at that, but I did. I'll go stand in the corner now.

    Somewhere in the darkness, the gambler he broke even.

    Rest in Peace

    RIP and thanks for the music

    My favorite will always be "The Ballad of Calico" 

    A double album about the old silver mining town of Calico California 
    I'll have to look that up - I've been to Calico a few times.
    -Zorba, "The Veiled Male"

    I'll always remember him as Kenny Rogers and the First Edition.
    And since I laughed at JerryBobCo's post, I'm standing in the corner with the other Mike.

    Talented man.

    The lyrics of that song from The First Edition are priceless.

    I’m with you brother.  Mine passed away last year and damnit it hurt BAD.  She was a great woman and I will always love that girl.  We married very young and she was the mother of my kids.   

    Crazy enough my wife became my ex-wife’s probably best friend and the three of us had a great time the last time we were together.   Both Kim and I mourned her deeply and you’ll appreciate this, her memorial service was in New Orleans and we put her ashes in Lake Pontchartrain.  

    Thank YOU for bringing those memories back.

    Lake Pontchartrain?  The north winds usually bring most things  back to shore. I'd suggest a barefoot walk down the beach. Around where FitzGerald's Restautant  used to be.

    Red beans and rice with bread pudding for dessert at Mulates.  That’s a good day!

    Tis true. I love the scenery of Colorado, but I miss the food and fishing of Louisiana.
    There's not a fish in this state worth catching, or a meal in this state worth buying.
