No Show Jones..
« on: April 30, 2013, 07:53:04 AM »
Surprised this hasn't been mentioned on here with all the country fans we have. But we lost an icon a few days ago, old George Jones past on. I was a huge Jones fan from my teen years. When all my friends were listening to the head banging crap i was into George, Willie, Waylon and the boys. Oh I had my rock music but at heart I have always been a country fan and old George was at the top of the list..

Rest in peace no show Jones.

The man makes good music but 'he' also had to deal with his demons. Had a ticket to one of his concerts and yes, he was a no show. We had an option to keep our tickets for a future show or cask them in. I kept mine and when the show finally arrived so did George. It was quite apparent George was drunk on stage but he managed to pull it through. The mans a master poet and a GREAT singer but I never bought another ticket to see his concerts after that. As most people with addictions, he was unreliable.....

I will always be a huge fan.  I grew up with his music and I still listen to it and love it today.

Personal demons aside, he was a one of a kind talent, and I think he left the world a much better place than he found it.

RIP George

Never heard the "no show" alias before and makes no difference to me, he was a wonderful entertainer. Got a chance to see him and Tammy just before she passed, she was a very tired and spent prescence, but he made up for it.

I watched the youtube link then watched "Who's going to fill their shoes",sure makes you appreciate all the great talents that have left us.

I wonder in twenty years if names like Jones,Cash and Jennings will still be more recognized then some of the stars of today.
