Don Williams, my fathers favorite musician, has passed away at the age of 78 after a brief illness. Had I been born a girl, I would have been named Amanda after one of his hits. Rest in Peace, Gentle Giant.

This makes me sad. I really liked his music. Amanda, Good Old Boys Like Me and a bunch of others. Always heard he was a pretty good guy too. I guess 78 isn't too bad of an age though.

17 years ago I was in China for a month. I was in a bar that apparently only had a cd of Don Williams on a continuos loop. If it wasn't for the Chinese graffiti It could have easily been a US bar. So now everytime I here his music I am reminded of that experience and how it soothed a bit of home sickness. 

 

I also bought his latest album a couple of years ago and it sounded as good as the stuff from his heyday.

 

RIP.
