Buddy Cage Remembers John ‘Marmaduke’ Dawson

As previously reported, New Riders of the Purple Sage co-founder John ‘Marmaduke’ Dawson died yesterday at the age of 64. Longtime New Riders pedal steel player Buddy Cage offers Relix and the following words on his friend:
Henry and Panama Red were one and the same person. My old pal of 39 years, John ‘Marmaduke’ Dawson, the Last Lonely Eagle has done picked up his hat and coat and gone home. The gifted song-writer and creator of New Riders of the Purple Sage, passed away peacefully this morning near his home in Mexico. Muchos gracias, John for all the wonderful, wonderful songs that brought us together and keep NRPS alive and well today! You are SO missed…
