Sad news! I knew he was sick -- and it didn't sound hopeful. Sorry to know he's gone. My wife and I really liked him. Saw him live a couple times, and he was definitely one of the best performers we've seen. We also have many of his records on vinyl LP and CDs. We always thought he deserved to make it bigger in the industry -- couldn't figure out why it never happened to the level deserved. Sadly, talent doesn't always equal huge success. We feel fortunate to have seen him. Cleveland was fortunate to have him around for so many years!
