Bye Bye Bobby

I was very saddened to hear over the weekend of the death of Bobby Womack. He had been a huge hero of mine for many years, and I was lucky enough to see him live a couple of years ago when he was promoting the "Bravest Man In The Universe" album. In his first set he played the album, and that was pretty good, but we were blown away completely by the old-fashioned soul revue that he treated us to after the break. It was, like the man himself, extraordinary.

RIP Bobby, no longer the only survivor left still standing here.
