Pistol to Me

This is a great little animation from Ruth and Roger
Whiter about their late, great friend Tracy Thielen!
I knew Tracy through his band, Tracy and the
Hindenburg Ground Crew, and some back and forth
with emails up until his passing.
He used to send me notices of when he would play
at certain gigs, and I always lamented to him that
I lived in New Hampshire and his performances were
always in California…but keep sending them anyway!
I would announce it on the air, just in case someone
listening would be flying out there for some reason
and find the time to hit the club.
He was dark, very funny and immensely talented.
Some of his serious stuff is as good as anything I’ve
heard, from anyone.
The good die young, as the saying goes.
A lament that never seems to go away…
