    I had a chance to go to Mountain Jam and see him headline with The Heartbreakers but life got in the way. What a bummer. A bonafide legend.

    I did research on recovery from brain injury from instances like this, signs are not good unfortunately.

    EDIT: Just saw someone posted life support was pulled. Rough.

    He must have not even been cooled to determine brain death so quickly.

    Truly an awful loss of a legend. Got to see him earlier this year in Nashville with Joe Walsh, and I'm so grateful for that opportunity. RIP.
