This is one which will take me a long time to come to terms with.
This week by listening to the band’s back catalogue I’ve realised how much of an impact it’s had on my life.
Tom’s passing really hurts badly.
Like with many other artists my life’s been intertwined with his music. From the very 1st time I heard his music in London to the many roadtrips across the US, Denver in my cousin’s car or driving from Canada to NY when I used to play him loud in the car. I loved to drive to his music.
Play him on the jukebox while playing pool with my brother in this redneck country bar.
I feel so very sad.
I also feel for his bandmates…Mr genius Mike Campbell and all the others… what a loss for everyone around him.
And he had reformed Mudcrutch last year and put together a second album that is superb!
May he rest in peace and have a good time with all the others up there.
At least one of my greatest wish was fulfilled and I was able to see him live once.
