Thread Name: Obit: Sean Blackburn (Sept 2005)
Subject: RE: Obit: Sean Blackburn (Sept 05)
I just can't believe he's gone. I've known Sean for 35 years and he was always one of my closest friends. We played together for nearly ten years travelling from Boston to San Diego to Vancouver to Montreal and most points in between. We continued to get together whenever we could after we stopped working together. I saw him every year when I'd stop and play in Denver and we always did a few tunes at the end of the night. We played a few times in Minneapolis, too. Sean was at the top of his game in recent years, singing and playing better than ever, and happier than I'd ever known him to be, too. I wish he'd gotten to enjoy that contentment for a few more years. Hell, I wish WE'D gotten to enjoy it, too. God must have needed a crooner up there awfully bad because he took one of our best. I'm gonna miss you, buddy.
