RIP Leon Redbone, 69
« on: May 31, 2019, 05:05:17 PM »

Leon Redbone, who burst onto the pop-music scene in the mid-1970s with a startlingly throwback
singing style and a look to go with it, favoring songs from bygone eras drolly delivered, died on
Thursday in Bucks County, Pa.  He was 69.

His family announced the death on his website.  A specific cause of death was not given, but
Mr. Redbone had retired from performing in 2015 because of ill health.
"Your favorite songs, played beautifully"
