Couldn’t let this time in space go by without leaving something on my blog about him. He was magnificent, gifted, artistic, creative, intelligent and he touched the world with his soul and the universe with his spirit. His words and the feel/emotion in his music touched me throughout my life. Like most of the world, I am still in shock. Even though he is an entertainer, someone I never knew, this one hit hard. Rest in eternal peace & power.
