He was a great one.  Who woulda thought he'd ever make it to 81.  Good Job, George.  Peace be upon you.

RIP George Jones , one of the best there ever was , many people reckon THE best of course.

So many wonderful tunes to listen to tonight but i think i'll go for one of his best albums, the late period classic Cold Hard Truth . It would of course be rude and disrespectful to the man's memory not to sink a few beers whilst doing so.

Thanks for the music George, reckon i'll be listening to you  til it's my turn for the great gig in the sky.
