  1. Mine too. Unlike so many musicians he never stopped writing great songs. The songs he recorded in the last couple years were just as good as the 40-year old songs he was famous for. Getting played a lot today. Just heard Lake Marie, one of my favorites.

    1. For some reason, I’ve been listening to his cover of “I Just Called to Say I Love You”, the Stevie Wonder song. It’s so sweet and tender, but I have to admit it’s sad to hear his voice.

    1. I think they were complications of Covid. I have my shots now too. I’m not changing the way I live yet, but the shots make me feel less vulnerable. Yes, let’s all get vaccinated.
