Frontman and primary songwriter of the New Riders of the Purple Sage. His best-known work is probably a song he co-wrote with Jerry Garcia and Robert Hunter, "Friend of the Devil."

I had just seen Marmaduke a couple of nights ago, on one or another cable movie channel: he appears in the background of my favorite scene of "Festival Express," looking over Jerry's shoulder as he accompanies Rick Danko and Janis Joplin for an extremely drunken rendition of "Ain't No More Cane on the Brazos."

Sad to see Marmaduke go! I was a fan of the New Riders back in the 70s, and recently found their original CD with Garcia playing pedal steel, and its still one of my favorite albums. In fact, I just played Glendale Train tonight at a bluegrass jam and we had a short discussion about who John and the NRPS were, little knowing he had departed this earth. I saw NRPS at a local venue about a year ago, Marmaduke wasn't with them because he'd been in bad health for some time.

Take a last quiet look
at the last lonely eagle
he's soaring the length of the land
you know that he never will land
