Twitter Reacts To The Death Of Sleepy LaBeef
RIP Sleepy LaBeef. I can’t speak to the measure of peace he went away with—I can only hope that he knew how the knocked-out crowds he played for felt rich, because he was wealthy: with talent, drive, and generosity. A true American original.
Michael Madden @Tumbattle: Just heard that Sleepy LaBeef has passed away. My original celebrity interview and hero, and I was delighted to meet him on a couple of occasions. True gent and a giant of rockabilly, gospel, rock and roll and all things in between. RIP Sleepy. #sleepylabeef
Liam Grundy @liamgrundy: The great #sleepylabeef has passed away. I only worked with him once. He certainly rocked the room! A kind and humble man. RIP Sir.
