Sad, he had an incredible voice.

Of course, who would have thought he'd live as long as he did given how much booze and drugs he did in his younger days.

Sleep easy, Joe.

My website is currently having a holiday, but will return like the $6,000,000 man.  Bigger, stronger, etc.

In the meantime, why not take pity on a starving author and visit my book sales page at http://stores.lulu.com/gyppo1
