His "Phoebe Snow" is one of my very favorite songs, and I'm so glad I recorded it before I lost my voice.When he told me that he would never sing it again after hearing my version, I didn't know what to do with that, but I finally realized that was a supreme compliment from the master.
So funny, so bright, so interesting and downright humble. What a guy. His like we will not see again.
