Yeah, I think we should have these put up all over the place. Time to start saying NICE things, ya know what I mean?

BTW, thanks for the link. Not sure how or why you found me and linked me, but I linked you back (see "Other Venues").

I was actually looking for something Warren Wiebe and a link to your blog came up. Naturally, I had to look and I read a lot of your posts and they intrigued me. Thanks for linking me too. I will enjoy reading your posts!

Ah .... Warren. I get a lot of hits from searches regarding him. A lot of hits come from the Scandinavian countries, which I find interesting. As I've noted on the blog, as an L.A. Kings season ticket holder back in the 90's, Warren was a regular at the games, plus he sang America the Beautiful instead of the national anthem at the beginning of many games. There was a great deal of buzz the first few weeks of opening season the year he died ... "where's Warren?" was the question, and the answer was equally disturbing.

A great loss. How did you come to know him or his music?

Well, if truth be told, for years I thought Christopher Cross was the guy singing at the end of "Voices That Care" and for some reason I must have been looking at that video on youtube where his name was mentioned somewhere in the uploaders comments or something and I was immediately on the move to find more stuff by him. This is when I learned of his death, the history and some of the artists he performed for and with. This happened about a year and a half ago. Believe it or not, I have 77 songs (some live performance stuff included) that he has done. I know there is more out there and my quest continues. I am envious of you having been able to see him perform live...how cool!! I feel a sense of loss and somehow robbed of him in that there will be no more music from him. He was truly a gifted vocalit and it's like I almost fall in love with him when I hear him sing. Kinda weird, but it's honestly how I feel.
