Yes indeed, the father of Rock'n'Roll production didn't push up the daisies until this week. Who'd have thunk it? Damn people get old these days.

Btw, the only reason I used that news source was because I liked the headline of this news story (http://www.undercover.com.au/news/2003/20030801_dixiechicks.html).

*End Is Forever*
