Subject: RE: Obit: Guy Clark - Songwriter (1941-2016)
We've lost a number of great musicians this year: Merle Haggard, Lonnie Mack, Prince, David Bowie. . . but somehow Guy seems the greatest loss to me.

I only saw him once at the Winnipeg Folk Festival a few decades back. I recall a small workshop stage hosted by Ian Tyson and featuring Jerry Jeff Walker, Lyle Lovett and Guy Clark. I was already a fan of Ian, Jerry Jeff and Guy, but it was my first time seeing Lyle (while he still had big hair). I soon became a fan of his too.

I spent much of yesterday listening to Guy and playing his songs.
