Jimmy LaFave "How It Must Remain"

It’s hard to say goodbye to a friend. Jimmy LaFave is gone, after a difficult bout with cancer. I can’t imagine the pain he has been in, and note that he is not in pain any longer. His walk through these last months was filled with steel and grace. He performed as long as he could. He didn’t want the story out there, though people whispered. That he could keep it as quiet as he did, almost to the end, and that he played shows until he couldn’t, showed us his incredible strength of character.

Jimmy factored heavily into Music Fog’s early days. We filmed him in Memphis and Austin. He brought us to Cherokee Creek Music Festival. We came to WoodyFest in Okemah, Oklahoma at his request. He believed in us, and we believed in him. It is all the more precious to have this film, as he is gone. There were miles and smiles and songs together, but this was one of our most intimate moments. Just Jimmy and Rad on the Music Fog bus, parked backstage during 2010's Cherokee Creek Music Festival in Texas.

Generous, kind, and oh so talented. Jimmy, we will miss you forever.

- Jessie Scott
