“Olney was in the middle of his third song when he stopped, apologized, and shut his eyes,” Rigby wrote on Facebook. “He was very still, sitting upright with his guitar on, wearing the coolest hat and a beautiful rust suede jacket we laughed about because it was raining like hell outside the boathouse where we were playing — I just want the picture to be as graceful and dignified as it was, because it at first looked like he was just taking a moment.”

I cannot say I ever heard of this guy. I've probably heard his songs, and probably even liked them.
But, I got to thinking....71 isn't all that old, but what a way to go.
Not bedridden, not ill that we knew, not horribly diseased....almost as perfect as passing away in your sleep.

RIP, David.

Olney died of a heart attack during a performance onstage at the 30A Songwriter Festival in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, on January 18, 2020, at age 71.[3][5][11] "David was playing a song when he paused, said 'I'm sorry' and put his chin to his chest. He never dropped his guitar or fell off his stool. It was as easy and gentle as he was," Scott Miller said.[11]


Going out the way we all wish we could, doing something we love.

RIP

Died doing what he loved.

As for myself.

I want to go out while looking in the mirror .

Agreed.
Dignified and doing what he loved.

I see you linked a story from my local paper, The Reading Eagle.

I saw this article yesterday, and debated on posting, but I'm not familiar with the guy.

It's sad that he died, but it's almost beautiful the way it happened. He didn't fall off his stool, didn't grab his chest, or act like he was in pain. Nothing happened except he stopped playing, apologized, and his head bowed down.

Body still upright, guitar in his lap. Almost like the batteries suddenly ran out.

So bizarre, but so peaceful.

The great comedian/magician Tommy Cooper died to the sound of laughter- which was normally continuous when he was onstage anyway.

(I read about the event- I've never actually seen it before)
