    one of the most tragic and untimely deaths in music history. We could have been hearing sooo much more wonderful music… but the Lord Took his pain and took him to a better place. Hank you are the man and will always been the man.

    Hank did a lot of music in his short life and laid a really solid foundation for the entire genre. He was, and remains, The Man.
