Dan Hicks gone but not forgotten

I guess he finally caught the 103. When I was a youngster he helped connect me with country swing and provide a balance to the rock and roll I was listening to.

Fuck! It has been a bad month. Or more accurately, I guess this is the new normal now that we are all of a certain age.

Though there is a certain relevance here, given that he did pen the flouncer's anthem:

No reason why you should, k.

You have never played that self-indulgent game. So it ain't about you.

And I have myself done my best to resist the temptation.

Partying reduces your life expectancy? I'lll be spending the night writing my will.

He was 74 a little young perhaps but then they do say that partying hard can reduce your life expectancy. I never paid it much attention when I was in my 20's but I am starting to think about it now when many of my favourite entertainers are passing away.

I love, "How Can I Miss You".  I'll try not to take the joke personally. Cool
