Comedian Tim Wilson died yesterday. I first learned the news when Spanky Brown posted it to Facebook and Twitter. Within minutes, I found posts from many other comedians, including Dale Jones and Pat Godwin, who were shocked at the loss of their friend. When I interviewed Dale a few weeks ago, he mentioned that he loved working with Tim.
After my interview with Tim last month, I realized I had forgotten to ask him about a particular song of his. I assumed that I would get another chance the next time he came to town. It’s a reminder that life is short and precious. His death is also shocking because of his age. As we were walking out of the studio, we talked about the fact that we were born within two months of each other.
