Jesse Winchester has died of bladder cancer.
I had the privilege of seeing him perform twice in Memphis, once was at the Germantown Festival for his first appearance after being pardoned by President Jimmy Carter.
A great loss.
As most of you know, Jesse Winchester moved to Canada when he was drafted in 1967. He was pardoned in 1977 and moved back to the US a few years ago.
He wrote some of the best songs ever and I wish I knew how to embed some of them but I'm sure some of you will take care of that.
