Very sad.

In 1984 I saw George on the Rickie Lee Jones tour in L.A. The band all played parts in Rickie Lee's performance art. George played Rickie Lee's dad in wartime, telling a weird, wondrous story about a scorpion that stings itself to death. And of course his bass playing was excellent on songs like "It Must Be Love" and "Gravity."

Later that same year, I saw George play with Christine McVie at the same venue. Lower key but . . . it was Christine, after all.

R.i.p., George Hawkins.

P.S. Do you guys remember the TV show Rock Palace, with the Zoo performing "Angel, Come Home" and "Tonight" with George on lead vocal?
