I was afraid of this. Mike Nesmith was circumspect when discussing why PT was not out with the Mike and Mickey show, but I figured it couldn't be good.  R.I.P.

I'll second that. I caught one of his solo shows at the Borderline about 15 years ago and had a chat to him afterwards. He could not have been nicer. What a sad day.

Really?  I don't think I know a single person whose musical opinion I really care for who doesn't rate those late period (at least) TT albums.  I played SoE last night and the solo album this morning.  They're the kind of albums that make you realise, however much fun they might be, that 90% of the stuff one has in one's collections are entirely superfluous....

Weirdly, as far as I can see, it is still not being reported by the BBC and all the other reports seem to be based on a single tweet.
