Emitt Rhodes 1950 - 2020

Has there ever been a better double-sided single that wasn't by The Beatles or Creedence Clearwater Revival?

I should add that I was lucky enough to see Emitt in person back in the day; he played my old college in support of his masterpiece debut solo album.

I should also add that this death shit is really starting to piss me off. As is 2020 as a year.

Great talent, troubled soul. Chewed up and spit out by his record company.

Unfortunately many very talented individuals are not meant to thrive in the rock & roll life.

Just sad.

He was brilliant as a young man with a true McCartney sense for melody and good taste.
