Sigh...

Now we have word that a musical great, Ray Charles, has died. Another major loss in the span of a week. This is being a stinker of a week, isn't it.

"Georgia On My Mind". Man, he just ripped that song. You can listen to him sing and just see it all in your head.

Perhaps my favorite memory of him is Ray playing the music store owner in "The Blues Brothers". When he sat down at that keyboard hit those 6 notes, wow! You just hung on and went along for the ride.

Rest in Peace, Ray. You'll be on our minds as long as your music lives.
