Jimmy Lafave R.I.P.

Some sad news to report. I found out a couple of days ago that the great Texan troubadour Jimmy Lafave died of cancer in late May.

I was lucky enough to see him play in London a couple of times three of four years back. He was very personable and he and his band knew how to put on a great show.

But the unforgettable thing about Jimmy was his incredible, emotive voice. There are very few singers, if any, who can more reliably bring a lump to my throat. R.I.P. Jimmy. It's not dark yet, but it's getting there.

"Home Once Again" - Jimmy Lafave

"I'll Remember You" - Jimmy Lafave

"Not Dark Yet" - Jimmy Lafave
