Eddie Bo, a last email - RIP

Eddie Bo (Edwin Bocage) passed away on March 18th, 2009. I was on the road at the time, in the middle of sxsw. Two weeks prior, I received this email out of the blue from Mr. Bo and it made my day. Maybe he was tying up loose ends, or maybe it should be taken at face value as a kind note from a sincere person. Regardless, the honor was mine.

Anyone who had seen him play in recent years observed a youthful and keen man with another 20 years of gas in the tank. His sudden disappearance was a shock.
