    I saw the Neville Bros twice, once with Dr. John. Unforgettable. RIP Art Neville.

    Oh man, that whole generation of greats is on it's way out. Sad, but not all that sad - they've made into old age and hopefully got to enjoy a lot of it.

    I saw the Nevilles a few times during the 80s, the last time probably being around '91 or 92. Back when they were AMAZING. And then I saw them one more time with Dr. John about ten years ago. And they'd definitely lost a few steps, as had the good Doctor, but it was still great to see them. They still had their moments. Man, so many people who gave us sooooo many great musical moments and so much inspiration are either gone or going. And I guess a lot of us aren't that far behind. Gotta still enjoy it while we can...

    RIP sir...

    He fought the good fight and finished the race, all the while providing us with music to make everything better.
    Thanks Art. Rest in Peace!

    I once provided a Mackie Mixer for him when they played in Tucson. I had to go into the dressing room for something at one point after the show and Aaron was standing in the doorway. He was big and scary looking. I muttered something like, "Uh, excuse me, Mr. Neville..." and he let me pass.

    But Art was a big part of the whole New Orleans music scene. Sad to see him go.

    RIP, Art Neville

    I saw that earlier and was quite saddened. While we all must pass over it’s still a huge void in the world that will never be filled

    He really was. He really was.

    I remember one time getting the Nevilles booked for a political campaign fundraiser, at a point in their careers when they should've been able to be paid far more than a political fundraiser could afford to pay, and he was so nice about everything and there was no sense of resentment. He, and the others in the Nevilles, and in the Meters, should've been soaring way above that but they accepted, he accepted, circumstances with such grace. And they really nailed the show - they gave us everything they had.
