Gone today: Tony "little sun" Glover and Leon Redbone. Sad day for the blues.

Thanks for posting the sad news, Vermonter. They both will be missed. If anything, we owe it to the departed to live our lives to the fullest and enjoy music the way they would have had their time here not been cut short. Some links:

What a coincidence two be-suited revivalist jazz age songsters from Ontario, Canada, should die on the same day  :(

I mostly know Leon Redbone from his TV and commercial work of the 1980s to 1990s and I bought an album Mose did with Ken Whitely & Jackie Washington back in the 1990s I think. Talented guys
