Message:  So emotional to read your post.

Late afternoon in August 2000. A PBS crew in the room filming Mick. Stu, Jon, and I, and Jeanene Van Zandt are sitting on the edge of Mick's bed. Susie's on the phone with a question for Miss Mamie who's just down the hall. Mick's sitting beside the window framed in profile. Outside, Oregon thunder clouds. Inside, PBS cameras are rolling. They're asking him questions and he's answering. "...Well... I could've been a preacher..." Mick says at one point. His gravelly laugh, then. He raises his hand to the sky. At that moment the blinding sun bursts through. Stu told me that gave him the shivers.
