RIP Leon Redbone (1949-2019)

Passed away at "127". I remember seeing him perform on SNL back in the 80's when SNL was worth watching. But quite honestly, I thought he died, like 20 years ago or something.

RIP.

You might have been thinking about Frank Zappa (a college buddy of mine was certain that "Leon Redbone" was really just an alter-ego of Zappa, and I wouldn't have been totally surprised had that actually been true)
