I loved him, but I'd never gotten to any of his concerts. I think he embodied just kicking back, being laid back, and living your best life no matter what you did for a living. I'm seeing a lot of social media posts about contributions he made in many different ways besides music, too.He had a lot of devoted fans. But I never saw the attraction to his music. Sort of like the grateful dead with its' cult like following.
Oh man, that hits hard. I'll bet I've seen him play at Memorial Stadium more than 50 times back in the day.Hell of a ballplayer
The best third baseman to ever play the game. I tried to play like him but never came close.Hell of a ballplayer
Heckuva gent from what I've read over the years.Hell of a ballplayer
