"He died at 1:32am Louisiana time, keeping musician's hours right to the bitter end. I am grieving for my best friend and colleague of more than 30 years. But, as this great road warrior once said, 'Life is a tour, and it's all about how you decide to get where you're going. I don't want to ignore the bad things in life, but I want to emphasise the good things.'

"Buck made everything and everyone he touched better and happier. RIP my dear friend, my brother." Read more here.
