I generally hate euphemisms for death. Today I made an exception.
Cinder Bridge kicked off a memorial benefit this afternoon for Bill "Patch" Wooldridge. While I didn't know him personally, he was by all accounts a great guy. I got to hear him play with Widow's Hill a few months ago. Lots of joyous energy in the music. I'm sorry I missed my chance to meet him.
Anyway. The event was called the "Gone on Tour Benefit Concert."
Gone on tour. That doesn't sound so bad. It would be neat if the people I left behind said that about me.
Or, even better: She went where the music comes from.
That's a real place, right?
