    We've already discussed Joe Diffie's passing and John Prine's being in critical care.

    I just learned that one of my absolute favorite pop songwriters and performers, Adam Schlesinger (Fountains of Wayne/Ivy/Tinted Windows/"That Thing You Do"/etc.), is now in the hospital and on a ventilator from complications of COVID-19. In addition to my being gaga about his songwriting, I've met him and talked to him about music, and I really really like him, and I hope like hell he makes it.

    Anyway. I think there's likely to be quite a few. Who am I missing right now?

    Yikes!

    I'm a huge Asleep At The Wheel fan. Ray is 69.

    I can't imagine this is anything but traumatic for older folks.

    Gary Holt's test came back positive today. But he posted that he feels back to 100% as of now, thankfully. Yeah, I hope Carroll is able to rally.

    I saw that he had died but hadn't realized it was COVID-19 related.

    This is horrible, brothers and sisters.
    Let’s hope things get better.
    I think they will get worse, however.
    Hope is good.
