crunchb3rry : Still kinda processing the loss of Tom Petty, but remembered Charles Bradley. Who died a short while back. He reminds me of Junior Kimbrough. Two guys with raw talent that found their success way too late in life to appropriately enjoy it. That's the harsh truth about life. That there's no schedule for your milestones. Craziest thing: Tom and Charles were almost the same age, both born in Gainesville.

EvilDave83 : The moment he smiles, then opens his mouth with "why, is it so hard" I had tears in my eyes. Nothing, I mean NOTHING in music has this kind of soul. That shit just hits you right in the chest. My kids even love Bradley.
