Singer-songwriter Leon Redbone, who specialized in old-school vaudeville and Tin Pan Alley-style music, died earlier today, his family confirmed. He was 69.

"It is with heavy hearts we announce that early this morning, May 30th 2019, Leon Redbone crossed the delta for that beautiful shore at the age of 127. He departed our world with his guitar, his trusty companion Rover, and a simple tip of his hat. He’s interested to see what Blind Blake, Emmett, and Jelly Roll have been up to in his absence, and has plans for a rousing sing along number with Sári Barabás. An eternity of pouring through texts in the Library of Ashurbanipal will be a welcome repose, perhaps followed by a shot or two of whiskey with Lee Morse, and some long overdue discussions with his favorite Uncle, Suppiluliuma I of the Hittites. To his fans, friends, and loving family who have already been missing him so in this realm he says, ” Oh behave yourselves. Thank you…. and good evening everybody."

The Devil doesn't own my soul. He just leases it from time to time with an option to buy.

He really was one of the coolest guys around.
Tried to see him every time he came through NY.
Used to do a yearly summer show out at Guild Hall in the Hamptons.

Truly one of a kind.

A good representation of what his live shows were like.

Even his commercials were cool....despite what that raggedy ass dipshit Neil Young had to say about it...

...kinda looks like Captain Quad a little


Leon will definitely be missed.

Proud sponsor of FOM style hyperbole and wisecracks.
Setting the standard for over the top style.

We were somewhere around Barstow on the edge of the desert when the drugs began to take hold.


Viva El Scroties!
