Most singers wouldn't mind leaving the way Olney did...Singing on stage, apologize to the audience, bow your head, and die. {#Meditate}

David Olney
.
Olney died of an apparent heart attack during a performance onstage at the 30A Songwriter Festival in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, on January 18, 2020, at age 71. He was in the middle of his third song "when he stopped, apologized and shut his eyes," Amy Rigby said of Olney. "David was playing a song when he paused, said 'I'm sorry' and put his chin to his chest. He never dropped his guitar or fell off his stool. It was as easy and gentle as he was," fellow singer Scott Miller said.
.
Olney was a revered figure in the folk-rock and Americana communities who had recorded 20 albums of his own as well as having his songs covered by Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, Del McCoury and his former roommate Steve Earle.

Neil made his living & fame as the extraordinary rock icon he became, but he was a lover of jazz influenced by Buddy Rich among others. Here he is on the final day of Letterman's Drummer Week.  Hang on until the end for a real treat as he jazz's it up with Paul & the band.

I read this a few hours ago while I was out and I'm heart broken.  I'm a huge Rush fan and a great admirer of Neil Peart.  There's no debate that he was among the best rock drummers ever (the best, IMHO).  He was also an amazing lyricist who set a new direction for Rush upon joining them in 1974, an author, philosopher, humorist, and if you know anything about the band & his mates, a true friend to the end. The band said once that Red Rocks was their favorite venue in North America and I attended several of their shows there, which were indeed amazing. OV joined me for one of those shows in 2009, which was quite special for me.

Ride on, Ghost Rider....

WTH?!? I just watched the video for "Subdivisions" the other night on YouTube. I have no real knowledge of drumming but his work always seemed crisp, precise and integrated with the other instruments.

From 1959-62, he generated some notoriety by pretending to be G. Clifford Prout Jr., the president of the Society for Indecency to Naked Animals (SINA). Henry called the prank organization 'a parody of uptight, silly morality chasers.' (Slogans included 'A nude horse is a rude horse.') But Walter Cronkite, who broadcast a serious segment on SINA for CBS News, never forgave Henry for not letting him in on the joke."

In addition to his transgressions wiki has this, in so as far as perspective goes:
Up to the time of his death, Imus had been famously known for his contribution to private charity work.<105> He raised millions for the rehabilitation of wounded veterans of the Iraq war and for children with cancer and siblings of victims of sudden infant death syndrome, who had spent summers since 1999 on his ranch near Ribera, New Mexico.<105>

Imus Ranch

In 1999, Imus and Deirdre founded the Imus Ranch, a working 4,000-acre (16 km2) cattle ranch near Ribera, New Mexico, 50 miles (80 km) southeast of Santa Fe, for children with cancer and siblings of SIDS victims and children with sickle cell anemia. .<106> Until its closing in 2014, the Imus family volunteered their time at the Imus Ranch between Memorial Day and Labor Day each year. Imus continued his broadcasts from a studio there, while the rest of his cast broadcast from New York.


 
Wow, it's almost as if the world is made up of shades of gray.
