Okay, for my first 25 years I didn’t really know it. But after I did know it, this is the first time I’ve had to celebrate it without him. In my book, he was a genius of the same order as Dylan or Mitchell.
I’m happy to learn that a tribute concert is scheduled on roughly the first anniversary of his passing, November 6, in Montreal (actually he died on the 7th last year, Mitchell’s birthday.) I don’t plan to go, but I look forward to seeing the film.
But they’ll have a tough time upstaging his final album, released a few weeks after his death.
