Hey, Lana,

Everyone; It was such a shock when I saw it in the news today. I almost fell out of my chair. My heart is eclipsed today. :(

Larry said...

That's a shame.-I always liked Pink Floyd too.-I especially liked the album meddle.

Overhead the albatross hangs motionless upon the air

And deep beneath the rolling waves, in labyrinths of coral caves,

The echo of a distant tide comes willowing across the sand,

And everything is green and submarine.

Lana Gramlich said...

Larry; Yes...that's a classic. Sad to lose such a talent so relatively young.

Erik Donald France said...

It's a real bummer.

I dig the Floyd, as well.

Oh, I still can't believe it. I love the start of "Echoes", (that's him kicking it off)I keep listening to it over and over. Glad I got to see them play.

Lana Gramlich said...

I'm infinitely jealous, bird. I never got to see them play. :( "Echoes" is so awesome!
