Shit !!!! What a shame. The pretty faced next door neighbour with such talent!!!
I missed out on his passing away. Such a loss and why wasn't he a huge hit in the years then?

It's always a bittersweet feeling to discover such a great artist only after hearing that they've passed away. But my god, Emitt's entire discography is fantastic, even Rainbows End. You can tell he still had the songwriting chops til the very end. Rest easy.
