    RIP

    My parents enjoyed his work so I grew up with it (saw the CD Band in concert too), even if I don't listen to him anymore these days.
    No humor please, we're skittish.

    Never let good music get in the way of making a profit.

    RIP.
    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    He had a kick-ass band. Saw him in the '90's and the horse hair on his bow string was on fire!

    Charlie's classic 70's output was described perfectly by too rock for country and too country for rock. Saddle Tramp was always my favorite album by him. That title track blows me away every time. For anyone who thought he was just country they should watch that video and see what Charlie was like in concert. RIP to a true original. Got to see him last year with The Allman Betts Band. Great concert and his band was still smokin'. He will be missed.

    Uneasy Rider was a classic. RIP. He also gets props for appearing on two Dylan albums.

    It's funny how the subjects of Uneasy Rider became his core fanbase (green teeth and all) after the Devil went down to Georgia, aw but we still love you Charlie.

    Actually Saddle Tramp is a pretty solid album. I liked Charlie back when he passed around the pipe and all got high.

    His iconic The Devil Went Down To Georgia will endure for centuries to come.

    This is what I posted on Facebook:

    RIP Charlie Daniels. I was pretty into southern rock when I was growing up and The CDB were one of my favorites. My 2nd concert ever was The Charlie Daniels Band at Wings Stadium in Kalamazoo MI on the “Million Mile Reflections” tour and it was a kick ass show. I saw the CDB several other times over the years and the shows were always great. When Charlie started writing songs like “What This Country Needs Is A Few More Rednecks” he started losing me. He also started getting quite vocal about politics and some other things that not really my thing either. A few years ago, I read his autobiography and although I still did not agree with some of Charlie’s points of view, it gave me a perspective on where he was coming from. Much of his music, especially the early stuff, is still great and Charlie will be missed.

    A fan from the late 70s / early 80s. Saddle Tramp (as shown earlier) is my favorite. He also did the vocals on Toy Caldwells solo album.

    One of the funniest ever TV commercials was when Charlie was in a fancy restaurant, playing the wandering violinist's fiddle. Charlies hands it back to him with most of the hairs on the bow broken, and said "That's how you do it, son!"

    CDB was very good when it was country-rock, but when Daniels went down the same rabbit hole as Hank Jr with the hick shit he lost me.

    Yep, and that post-911 song was not something to be very proud of, IMHO.
