RIP George Jones

The Ol' Possum has climbed the Big Tree.

Of course, St Peter's gotta prepare for a possible no-show.

With all due respect to Big Casino and his preferences in voice, George Jones was greatest singer this universe has ever seen, and the greatest it ever will see.

I couldn't possibly count the number of nights I've spent getting ripped to the sound of his voice. No music means more to me.

Goodbye, Possum! And from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU.

Cliffie...I wanna argue with you about "greatest singer" but, other than Ray Charles and maybe Sam Cooke, I really can't mount a good argument.

So many days/nights gettin ripped to his songs. "Wine Colored Roses", "If Drinking Dont Kill Me, Her Memory Will", and my favorite, a rare live version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r6aMxbz0XLw

Anyone can sing about drinking, this guy lived it

R.I.P, sometimes great music comes around as suggestion only to be forgotten over a night of heavy drinking. And next time I recall any of it is in form of one of these kinda threads.

I like to think he rode home on a pure white lawnmower.

RIP Possum, hopefully the Big Guy saved you a bottle of heavenly hooch.
