I was saddened last week

I was saddened last week to hear one of my favorite musicians had passed on. Today when my favorite track (2.9 Mb mp3) came on my random playlist, I remembered why this is such a tragic loss.

With the current glut of pop stars, few have any pretense of making music for the sake of music. John Lee Hooker never wrote a song so he could score a movie deal, get a date with a supermodel, or sell more fast food.
