My good friend Mikey called him direct 4yrs ago and tried to convince him to play a gig in Morehead, Ky. He was pretty affible but he was ailing real bad from the alkeyhal and wern't strayin far from his house anymore. And by god 6-7 months later some 12 year old twerp motherfucker on a 4 wheeler slammed down on him in his own frontyard which I still can't comprehend. Think of him next time you bird your thang won't you?
See, one of my favorite stories of his was from when he bought a riding lawnmower, the kind that you can set to mow by itself. He got really drunk one day and decided it'd be good fun to have the thing chase him around the lawn. Eventually it caught up with him and broke both his legs.
