Only 69? Way too early.
I remember well when in 1986 (long before having read his r'n'r and country books, though I had been aware of them) I bought a copy of his "Hellfire" novelized bio of JLL at a Stars & Stripes bookstore at a US Army post here (i.e. straight from the source in those days long before the WWW) and immediately had to stop by again to buy the other remaining copy after I had told the editor of a rockabilly magazine about that book. Very entertaining reading ...

RIP and thanks for many a good read.

RIP Nick

one of my fav reads of his which I picked up back in the early 90s (seems like yesterday) is "Unsung Heroes of Rock 'n' Roll"
