I listened to Fillmore East in honor of Duane today and I couldn't get this thought out of my head.

Can you just imagine the unbelievable music that we would have if some of the most talented musicians we have ever had that were gone at a young age like Duane, Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and so many more had stayed on this Earth for a bit longer---like 30-50 years longer?

I am a man of Faith and I believe that things happen for a reason but sometimes you gotta wonder why? With Duane, maybe if Duane had not died we wouldn't have come to know Chuck Leavell, Dickey may not have risen to prominence, or Derek or Warren may not have ever come to be who they are?.....but what a price to pay.

Same goes for the rest.....it boggles the mind to think what could have been.

You could look at the glass as half-full. It blows my mind that I have seen perform in 2010:

Gregg Allman (w/ ABB)
Eric Clapton
Santana
Winwood
Dylan
Neil
Phil Lesh (and, ok, Weir!)
Daltrey

It boggles my mind that these guys, who are probably set, contine to perform many decades after I first got into them. I'm grateful for those who survived.

Amen and amen. From those who've gone and those who've remained, all these musical gifts have lives of their own and it's timeless. Thankful for all the music that shapes my life and lifts me up.

Now this might sound strange but with Duane death at such an early age has done nothing but add to his legand. Duane will be remembered for his greatness. If he had lived who knows what would have happened to tarnish greatness. We have seen many people go down in flames sell out as time passed only hurting/destroying thier reputation.
