Fairfield Four, Now There Are Only Four

The sad news waiting for me this morning is that Wilson 'Lit' Waters Jr. of the Fairfield Four has died of cancer. I had the pleasure of hearing the Fairfield Four open for Lyle Lovett at TPAC some several years ago. I remember them getting a kick out of introducing themselves as the Fairfield Four, pausing a second, and then assuring the crowd that there were indeed five of them on stage. "Nothing's wrong with your eyes", one would say. "There are five of us."

Go here to read their very interesting biography, and here to read the news of the passing of Wilson 'Lit' Waters Jr.
