RIP: Ray Sawyer

Recommended Posts

I saw Ray perform 4 maybe 5 years ago in a small venue, maybe 100 people. I got to chat with him just a bit. Funny man. I first saw them when The Guess Who and the Grass Roots both canceled a show here in 1973 maybe 74.. Dr. Hook & The Medicine Show played instead. They did a fractured version of "Sylvia's Mother." 

 

"Sylvia's father said, Sylvia's pregnant, and you're the one that got her that way." I mentioned that to him, and he laughed and laughed. It was a good show, good time, and Ray will be missed.

 

I found a youtube recording of it:

 

 

Godspeed Ray.
