Gordon Lightfoot has passed away at 84. At one time he was putting out a string of memorable songs like "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald", "Ribbon of Darkness", and "Sundown". But if he had only written one song, I would remember him for the beautiful "If You Could Read My Mind". RIP Rainy Day Man.

Sad news on rainy night here in northern California. My dad is still a big fan of Lightfoot. He was playing his records in the 70's along with those of Jim Croce, Glen Campbell, and Neil Diamond. I always liked "Carefree Highway," "Rainy Day People," (I've quoted that one on rainy days even into this year) and "If You Could Read My Mind" - tough not to sing along with that one. I think people used to sing "The Wreck of Edmund Fitzgerald" in bars.

I have always been a big fan and I listen to his music often. His songs have been recorded by many other singers.

Just heard of the the passing of Tina Turner at 83. I feel terrible, she was "simply the best". Her shows were fantastic and when she came on as the second act to the likes of Jagger and the Stones, she blew them all away. There isn't a female artist now that could hold a candle to her and she was performing into her 70's. She was absolutely the Queen and no can compare to her. RIP My Lady.
