He lived really hard, smoking and drinking his days away, then later became a health nut so to speak. The combo of drinking and smoking is really cancer causing, ala Eddie Van Halen, metal pick in the mouth notwithstanding.

Sorry to hear this, I was reading up on him just a month or so ago. He seemed to be a nice guy.

That was Jerry Jeff. Self-destructive without knowing it for a long time, then, like many of us, turning the corner and realizing his mortality was a real thing, developed a different appreciation for the 'slow lane.'

Times he came on-stage so drunk he couldn't sit on his stool, let aloe perform, but his heart and ability were always there, no matter how clouded it got.

Here's a great lead-in story by Todd Snider, live on stage, re. Jerry Jeff and he closing down a bar in Santa Fe, and a street musician in an alley, playing a standard Jerry Jeff tune, unaware that Jerry Jeff was standing there, likely drunk as all hell.

Then the highlight; Jerry Jeff steps onto the stage for what seems an impromptu live rendition of Mr. Bojangles.

Yep, we cried a bit to see this presentation. Jerry's 70 on the video..

Beautiful stuff.

(*And thanks for the tip re. the broccoli sprouts, yesum; they panned out, per research we've done).

Like J. Prine, these folks are so real so much of the time, thee share more than their writing and musical ability with folks.

Watched a doc on making Austin City Limits, he was shown in numerous clips, along with Willie, Merle. Definitely a great song venue for decades.
