Outlaw Blues

Paul Williams
Rest In Peace

Paul Williams was the founder of Crawdaddy, the first rock magazine that treated the music as music and not a teenage fad. He was a gifted writer who provided a platform for many others, and his influence is felt by anyone who regards rock'n'roll as a medium that can be both fun and thought provoking. Williams died last night surrounded by his family, including his wife, the gifted singer and songwriter Cindy Lee Berryhill.

A wonderful, sensitive writer who will be greatly missed.

Sad news. I've read all his books on Dylan performances and was looking forward to another when I heard about his decline in health. My heart goes out to his family and friends. I'm going to go back and re-read his work soon. RIP.
