R.I.P Mr.Duke, this year has been a bad year for music legends.

Only two weeks ago, J.J.Cale died and now Duke is dead.

Shocking! Talented musicians like him always seem to go when you least expect it. Repose en paix Mr Duke!

Very sad. I just read that it was due to battling chronic lymphocytic leukemia.

I am also attending a funeral this Thursday for a local educator (and dear friend) who helped revolutionize higher education.

Not a good week at all.

When I once began to explore FZs universe, it was often very hard for me. George Duke was one of the reasons for me, not to give up. Sad news. RIP and thank you! :cry:

What a bummer! I am very sad to learn this. At least they can begin to reform the 74 band in heaven. RIP Mr Magic Fingers.

May he be forever in Dupree's Paradise.

R.I.P Mr George Duke.

Did he have health issues? I am really shocked, this is speechless. I was humming Inca Roads in my head when I read this.

DAMN.
