Another good one gone. Lots of great songs. RIP
Oh no ... R.I.P.
Jerry Jeff was a heck of a singer songwriter back in the day and a big deal when I was growing up. His Viva Terlingua album from 1973 is classic Texas gonzo country music.
I've got 'Bent to thank for turning me on to this one.
Aw dang. Adios amigo.
Trying to hold the Wind up w/ my Sails - oh Jerry Jeff, your misbehavior helped to bring meaning to my mid 70s college years.
Peace - Deeve
oh man ... RIP Jerry Jeff ... gonna miss ya
When my older brother came back from his stint in the army around '69 or '70, all of it spent at Fort Monmouth in New Jersey, was heavily influenced by the music of three artists in that area at around that time (Greenwich Village), Bob Dylan, Dave Van Ronk, and Jerry Jeff Walker.
Happy trails JJ. Sorry to see you go.
RIP Mr Bojangles
RIP Jerry Jeff. Another classic gone...
My favorite JJW song. I play it a lot around the house... great first line...
and great 'I couldn't stay here if I wanted, I couldn't stay here if I tried, you were always so disappointed in me...' brutal and clear and true... like JJW.
Sad news indeed. Rest In Peace.
I saw him a coupla times.
The best was on farm wagon at a ball diamond in Yankton, SD circa 1986.
He opened solo for Asleep At The Wheel and then sat in with them at the end of the show.
A buddy of mine almost set Jerry's hat on fire trying to light his cigarette for him in Key West.
He had his lighter set too high!
(there's a song in that...)
RIP my "Gonzo" friend.
Honestly I'd thought he'd passed already
Viva Terlingua was my intro to outlaw country in 74.
That masterpiece alone was enough to ensure JJW a place in our hearts. RIP
Rest in peace Jerry Jeff Walker. He is one of my favorite country music singer and songwriter.
I always thought he was the best of all the "outlaw" country crowd. I haven't owned a copy of Ridin' High since cassette days but those songs are still in my head all the time
