Arlo Guthrie's long-time wife Jackie has unfortunately died from liver cancer last Sunday and was just announced. I interviewed Arlo this past April (tinyurl.com/9ya8nmc) and today I went back through the recording of our conversation and found some wonderful quotes from Arlo about his wife, whom he met when she was working at The Troubador club back in the day. You can listen to them below. The cool thing about his rememberances about Jackie was that they were weaved around mentions of four great performers that have left us including Earl Scruggs, John and June Carter Cash and John Hartford. Nothing to download- just hit "Play"

I read this on Arlo's Facebook status...

Dear Friends

The sun rose on my world this morning. Jackie stayed with us throughout the night, lingering in our hearts just out of sight but clearly present. She woke me before sunrise in a dream saying that the hour had come when she would need to leave us and be gone before the sun arose. As her words awakened me I walked outside and stood looking over the river talking with her in the predawn twilight we both loved so much. It was our time and for years she brought me coffee as I took photographs of morning on the river.

There are loves, and there are LOVES. Ours was and will continue to be what it has always been - A very great love. We didn't always like each other. From time to time there were moments when we'd have our bags packed by the door. But, there was this great love that we shared from the moment we met - a recognition - It's YOU! And we would always return to it year after year, decade after decade and I believe life after lifetime.

I can hear the household awakening now as I ramble through my thoughts and feelings. I am needed elsewhere. So a new day begins, another chapter in the book of our love. It seems to me already written although I can't remember what happens next. All I know is, I've read it before and it ends well.

I've had to cancel and postpone a few shows coming up. I will make them up as soon as possible. The tour will begin with the gigs scheduled for Canada, and I will move ahead through the rest of whatever happens next. Our wonderful guru, Ma Jaya Sati Bhagavati always reminded us to stay in the moment - no thought of the past or future. The moment is all we really have, the rest is fiction. Jackie and I lived that teaching as best we could and I will continue to be present and accounted for.

Stay tuned... adg

He was just in my hometown, St. Johnsbury Vt., a couple of weeks ago
Gone hopefully to the Alice's Restaurant in the sky, where peace love & her father in law prevail -- RIP, Jackie Guthrie
