Re: (TV) Arthur Lee R.I.P.
from my friend Mark Linn of thelovesociety.com & Delmore Recordings:
"Arthur Lee died peacefully at Methodist Hospital in Memphis, a little after four
in the afternoon Aug 3, 2006 with his wife Diane by his side. His death comes
as a shock to me because Arthur had the uncanny ability to bounce back from
everything, and leukemia was no exception. He was confident that he would be
back on stage by the fall.
When I visited with him recently, he was visibly moved by the stories and
pictures from the NYC benefit concert. We watched the DVD of the great House Of
Blues concert from '03, and he told me how much he appreciated Baby Lemonade's
dedication to his music. He was truly grateful for the outpouring of love from
friends and fans all over the world since news of his illness became public.
Arthur always lived in the moment, and said what he thought when he thought it.
I'll miss his phone calls, and his long voice messages, but most of all I'll
miss Arthur playing Arthur's music."
