Yes, there’s the movie. But if you’ve never read Lonesome Dove and its surrounding books, you’re really missing some great writing.
 
Thanks, I will check him out.
 
Don't miss Annie Proulx.
I had a go at screenwriting, both original stories and adaptions. The only worthwhile scripts turned out to be those adapted from really good short stories. Not surprisingly, mediocre fiction makes for bad scripts. I guessed that Annie Proulx must be a wonderful storyteller since the Brokeback Mountain movie turned out so well, and that was right.

I have a memory of her visiting my elementary school in Berkeley when the Henry Huggins books came out.  We had a small library in the school and she had something to do with it and was there somewhat often for a year or two or so. That was 4th, 5th and 6th grade for me.  One of her children may have attended the same school.  Very fuzzy.  That was a long, long time ago.  She did spend a lot of time in Berkeley of and on.  I do remember her though because the meeting the lady who actually wrote the books was indeed a special treat for a young kid.

She contributed a lot of joy to this world.

To a wonderful life well lived.  {#Cheers}

I should read LD. The TV mini-series adapted from it was outstanding. 

McMurtry was an interesting guy. IIRC he had a used bookstore in DC and would buy book collections from famous people in town, including the considerable holdings of Alice Roosevelt (Teddy's daughter).

Yeah, that's a tough one. Apparently Death was the only thing that could stop him from writing.

He was also brilliant as Lieutenant Al Giardello onHomicide: Life on the Street. One of the great tragedies of our streaming era is that the rights to the  distribution of the series are so tangled that it's not likely you'll see the show on Netflix and the like.

my first exposure to the msb was stage pass (77 0r 78 i think)

wore that out, lots of good memories too

to me he was like springsteen with a little more talent (or much better voice)

Yep 1977.  Pulled out my copy of Stage Pass last night and reripped it.  Such a great album.

I'll send you a link for it if you like when it's all cleaned up.  I think now is the time to go back and give his other albums a proper dusting off.  Been talking about that for a long time.

Agree with you on the Springsteen thought.  The voice, yeah.  No slight to Bruce, btw who broke nationally out of Cleveland at the very same time Michael was getting started.  What is amazing when looking back at his career is that while being a working musician, he held his pm drive airshift for 30 straights years at the same terradio Classic Rock station, 98.5 WNCX.  I really haven't listened to music terradio much in the past 20 years since finding RP and had no idea that his run was that long.  That and I have worked until 6 for the last 20 years or so and his shift was over when I got off of work. Just new that he was always there.

Gene Taylor. I know him from the Blasters, but he played with a lot of acts for a lot of years. Good write-up here. Initial reports just said he froze to death. Probably not that exactly, but the Texas freeze-out certainly didn't help matters.

 

It was hypothermia.
