RIP Kinky Friedman

I did not know his music but I did enjoy his books.

Did you see my tribute post in the music section with the album Lasso from El Paso - just check out the musicians on the album.

Thanks for the pointer. Downloaded and cued up once the Archers finishes. Good fun listen for a Sunday morning.

That is sad news. I met him when I was a driver for the Edinburgh International Book Festival. He enjoyed cigars but refused my offer of a detour to the tobacconist on George IV Bridge. He seemed genuinely nice and was very funny.

How strange. The same obit is in the Guardian again today. I’d not heard of him until this thread. There is just so much music out there, waiting to be discovered.
