Total fave. I saw him on the So. Accents tour wit Dylan - talk about confuzzin'.

But when he broke into "Breakdown", "Refugee", Here Comes My Girl", that Animals cover ... everything was understood.

Losing so many great ones. I know I'm getting old and crochety, but I don't see anyone on the horizon capable of stepping up to the plate...

Hmmm.

Not with a band, but Ryan Adams shares a lot of traits ...

Kinda cool all the tribute performances. George Harrison's son Dhani, on Kimmel the other night, had "T.P." and a broken heart writ on his Charvel.

Yeah, he was highly respected. Lucinda Williams posted a lovely tribute as well.

As a guy who refuses to play in cover bands, I think I've covered around 10 of his songs over the years, starting with "Breakdown".

Actually, "Breakdown" was the second guitar solo part I taught myself, following "Sympathy for the Devil".
