RIP Guy Clark – 1941 – 2016


Just when you think 2016 couldn’t suck more….

From his publicist:

Dear Friends, I was so scattered this morning, I neglected to put the death details in the announcement about Guy. I sent out a corrected press release. Guy died after a long illness at 3:41 this morning. His caregiver Joy and Verlon Thompson were at his side. Guy was wearing a pink Shawn Camp T-shirt, it was his favorite shirt and it made me smile to think of him wearing it at the end. Guy has been suffering so much these last months and I’m grateful that he is no longer in pain. I will love him forever and I know he loved me. What more can we ask for? I hope you will all listen to some Guy Clark music today.

Domestic now, but spent early to late 80s playing drums in a hair metal band in Toronto. Since then I've lost the hair and have found new ways to scratch the rock and roll itch.
