Thread Name: Richard Farina's 'Morgan The Pirate'
Subject: RE: Richard Farina's 'Morgan The Pirate'
One more postscript...Dylan was the one EVERYBODY expected to die young. They were sure of it. But he didn't. The man's staying power and tenacity has been extraordinary.

Both Dylan and Farina were extremely reckless in those days, each in his own particular fashion. Farina's recklessness caught up with him.

Everyone who knew Farina said that he lived every day to the fullest, with huge enthusiasm. He was very charismatic, charming, and full of energy. Maybe he instinctively knew that he didn't have long on this Earth, so best to make the most of it while it lasted...
