4. Me, too

I remember him doing a concert on the last day of Seattle's Bumbershoot festival on the Labor Day weekend of 1994. He went from song to song without a break, and gave the crowd so much to love. It was one of the very best concerts I ever attended.

13. Yup. Got lucky.

 

Just hit Seattle for vacation. Wife was in a store downtown I was just hanging outside. Bruce Hornsby went strolling by. Picked up the local weekly to see if he was playing then saw they were all playing that night.

14. Bumbershoot

was where I saw some of the best concerts and shows of my life. Comedians Paula Poundstone, Penn and Teller, musicians Joan Baez and will never, ever forget Ray Charles with a full orchestra behind him in the basketball arena. When he sang "America" there wasn't a dry eye in the crowd.

My wife at the time and I lived about two hours away, we took a hotel room and went to all three days of Bumbershoot that year. It was the last truly happy weekend of our marriage.

8. Totally Fitting That He May Have Contracted It While Doing a Benefit Concert

A true humanitarian, who has never given up the fight to make this world a better place.

Here's a beautiful song he recorded with Leslie Mendelson just a couple years ago, for a documentary on the brave nurses and doctors who were on the front lines during the AIDS epidemic. It seems particularly fitting right now.

Wishing you a speedy recovery, Jackson. The world needs you and your music.

9. '65, he was 17.

So that should make him around 71 or 72 by now.

10. Doctor my eyes...

Got to see him with the Eagles at California Jam in 1974.

Get well, Jackson.

15. Jeez!

Hate to hear that. Played the Running on Empty album to pieces when it came out.

Get well, Jackson!
