A legend.

I don't know what to say.

This man was my hero. Apart from the obvious technical proficiency, he penned so many incredible songs over the years that were crucial in my own development as a young man searching for his identity. His humility in the face of constant praise from musician folk, the reinvention of his craft throughout the 90s, how he was able to keep going after the death of both his daughter and wife...dude wasn't just a tremendous musician, he was a tremendous human being.

This really ended up being his swansong. The lyrics never rang truer than they do today.

Thanks for everything, Neil.
