That is crushing news! I still can't believe it, I know he was getting up in age and I am so grateful that we had him this long, but it's still such sad news.

God bless you Mr. Friedman R.I.P. you were one of the greats :(

I tried calling Dave last week. It had been too long since we last talked. Dave associate produced my Teenage Tupelo and appears in my Sore Losers. So long, Dave. (Mike McCarthy)

I loved his book, A Youth in Babylon, and read through it several times. He had some fascinating stories in there- even if some of them seemed to have elements that owed more to showmanship and the art of telling a good story rather than a strict adherence to documenting the factual details involved.

I'd love to see a sequel to A Youth in Babylon, but I think that I read that no publisher would accept it without major cuts that Friedman refused to make. Is that true, or just a rumor?
