Sad news, I've sometimes thought looking at LS photos, Ed sort of looked edged out before he left. A great player and contributor to early Skynyrd RIP Ed..

If it's any consolation, we all get edged out in the end.

Rest in Peace Robin Leach...."Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous"!

I remember they did a parody on that called: 'Lifestyles Of The Relatives Of The Rich And Famous' and they had a woman who was the sister of Katherine Hepburn who was homeless and pushing a shopping cart around and she talked just like her.

Senator McCain should not have run for public office again knowing he was terminally ill, but he was in politics only for himself for so long one almost forgets there was once a time when he was in the asset column for America (the Vietnam War). RIP.

Well, he was a Californian playing in a southern rock band. He was also physically ill even back then.

Wow. Didn’t know until I saw your post. RIP John McCain a true American Patriot and Hero.

He went through more Hell than any of his pathetic critics have ever even imagined. Especially with the draft dodging leadership we currently have... 

My condolences to his family.

So sad.

He was the son of an Admiral who amassed a personal net worth of over $16 million as a life-long politician. America's VA hospitals are overrun with veterans who've gone through so much more for so much less so please spare us the virtue signaling.

And was held captive as a prisoner of war and was tortured... but keep with your non-serving pussy ass narrative.

My brother was 'commandant' of an S.E.R.E. (Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape) camp outside L.A. that was voluntary that put guys through what to expect if they were captured in Vietnam. He met McCain I believe when he visited the camp. He took me there one night when no one was there and it was creepy as hell inside and out. 

My brother would tell him: Rest in peace you old war dog.

The man was not perfect, he would be the first one to admit such himself, but by the last 20 years of his life his integrity could not be questioned. 

I also am in the camp of "silent service" that is, if you serve that is your choice and you do not use that service to benefit yourself. However, I would take hearing about McCain's torture in an NVA POW camp over Cadet Bone Spurs (Trump) stating on record that avoiding STD's was his own personal Vietnam while is jackass father pulled strings to get him 4 deferments from service.

Seriously, you have to be a SERIOUS asshole to dodge the draft, chase pussy, and stay cosy knowing daddy's connections will keep you safe... and then 50 years later talk shit about a POW. I really would be hard pressed to find a better example of how low and disgusting a person could be, captured on video as well.
