Mary Jane's Last Dance is the coolest rock song ever made.  

It's well-written with a not-so-subtle metaphor about marijuana and uses sexy-ass, smokey-room guitar hooks.  Chill and singable with a superb solo. Great opening riff and a steady, simple beat.  It has a few touches of harrmonica but there's no cooler, pure guitar rock song.

Has it been 100% confirmed that he's passed? All the reports are saying so far is that he was found unconscious and rushed to the hospital. 

Hope like hell that this isn't true. One of my all-time favorite musicians, but never got to see him in concert.

Fuck. Fuck. Fucking Fuck. A bad day just keeps getting worse. Life can be cruel and merciless.

RIP to one of the all-time greats. I never appreciated music until I started listening to him. He was who actually got me into music. The first time I listened to Running Down a Dream, it was like a lightbulb in my head turned on. "Oh, now I get it....."

I had a chance to see him in Boston this summer, but opted to go see Spoon.

I'd like a do-over.  Sorry to see a true legend pass too young.  (Also was sorry to see Holger Czukay pass away a couple of weeks ago, speaking of Spoon.)
