Thread Name: Townes Van Zandt (1944-1997)
Subject: RE: Townes Van Zandt
I saw Townes at the Cambridge Folk Festival about a year before he died.

He delivered one of my favourite one liners ever (I'm aware that he tended to repeat his inter-song banter, so most have you may have heard it before).

It was something like "I'm Schizophrenic, but Hell that makes two of us".

Great line. Great songwriter. sorely missed.
