A Final Pound

This past weekend, the 4th to be exact, Lee Hazlewood succumbed to cancer at the age of 78. Lee Hazlewood is best known for being huge in Sweden and writing one of the most popular songs of the sixties, Nancy Sinatra's "These Boots Were Made For Walking". Hazlewood was also huge amongst the alternative community. I can't tell you how many versions I've heard of Some Velvet Morning, his duet with Nancy Sinatra. But, with due reason of course as it is an amazing song. As he rides out on his horse into the sunset, I say peace to Lee Hazlewood.
