my mom listened to him a lot when i was a kid, so i grew up to love his music. there's not another artist out there that i've felt a 'connection' with as much as i have with him. i've never heard a song by him that i haven't enjoyed. my mom and i went to several of his concerts together, it was kind of 'our thing' and something that we always looked forward to.
when he died in october, it honestly felt like a part of me died with him. i never understood why people got so upset over an artist passing away [prime example - elvis presley], i never understood how someone could be so upset over someone that they've never met, but now i know EXACTLY how they feel.
i am still in shock that this happened to him. i think the hardest part to accept is the fact that he should still be here with us.
below are a few pictures that i took at some of the concerts:
