I was very saddened to hear about Ray Charles. Truly a legend, he was. All I can hear now is, "Georgia, georgia..."

By the way, did anyone hear what another one of my favorites, Morrissey, announced at a concert of his?

It is with the passing of giants like these that we sadly learn how much they gave us, and how desolate the future looks when we try and think of who has enough class, talent, and charm to become as much an icon of American music as Mr. Charles will always be.

Personally, I have that scene from the Blues Brothers - the shake your tailfeather one - stuck in my head :-)

The great Ray Charles died today from liver disease at the age of 73. Ray Charles was one of the greatest musicians to ever live. When he sang or played his music could make you smile or it could tear your heart out and make you cry. A hard life gave him is wonderful sound and his power to make each note of music carry a lifetime of feeling. There will never be another like Ray Charles!

This one's for you Ray!

God must need somone to teach the angels to sing!

First Ronny, now Ray!? Who's next that's famous to kick the bucket, Queen Elizabeth or Pope John Paul II?
Farewell, Mr. Charles. :(
