Jerry Jeff died last night. This wasn't the news I wanted to wake up to. So many legends and stories about Jerry Jeff and, after Guy Clark, I think he's about as good a songwriter as I ever heard. I was lucky enough to see him live a few times and it was always a fun time. When I was a kid, there was a song that said, "If there's a rock 'n' roll Heaven, you know they've got a Hell of a band." I like to think that Jerry Jeff and Guy Clark, and John Prine and Jim Morris are somewhere still playing and carrying on.
