Quote of the day.

“There are only two kinds of songs; there’s the blues, and there’s Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah.” - - Townes Van Zandt (1944-1997)

In honor of the great Koko Taylor who left us earlier this week, and Townes Van Zandt, who left us far too early.

Thanks to Neil Smith over at First Offenders for reminding us how much we gained from their being here and how much we've lost by their passing.

Thanks, David. One of my favorite songs and definitely one of my favorite performances. The part where the old man starts crying gets to me every time I see this. I wish you could see all songs in such an intimate setting.

Townes had this goofy amiability that was the perfect counterweight to his sense of the tragic.

Good stuff...
