Thread Name: Obit: Art Thieme (1941-2015)
Subject: RE: Obit: Art Thieme
I had the good fortune to see Art live several times during his prime, and bantered with him on Mudcat after he joined. He also provided me with a couple of treasured items...one by just knowing an obscure song, and one by duplicating an unpublished tape of a mutual friend who has also passed away.
Art was a treasure.... a singer, a generous source of knowledge, a raconteur, a gentleman, and a fighter who made the best of the sad hand life dealt him in his later years.
Miss him? I have missed him for quite awhile already... but this is different.
Bye Art... and thank you for everything
