Labor Day Weekend feels almost eerily appropriate given how people consider it the end of summer.

Headin' out to San Francisco
For the Labor Day weekend show
I got my Hush Puppies on
I guess I never was meant for glitter rock 'n' roll
And honey, I didn't know that I'd be missin' you so
Come Monday, it'll be alright
Come Monday, I'll be holdin' you tight
I spent four lonely days in a brown L.A haze
And I just want you back by my side

Complications from skin cancer did Jimmy in. Don’t forget the Sun screen.  They were having some kind of tribute today in Key West but we needed to leave before it began. All the shops were playing his music.  RIP.

Merkel Cell. A very rare, very aggressive form of skin cancer. He had been first diagnosed four years ago according to reports. A friend of mine died from it after about two years following a misdiagnosis initially.
