Missed Opportunities

I am sorry to say that wonderful performer and great guy Phil Gottlieb passed away early this morning. I am even sorrier to say that, while the "wonderful performer" part I can personally attest to, the "great guy" aspect is something I really only know second-hand.
I have witnessed on Facebook, on MySpace, and even in a call from a friend in Boston last night the great out-pouring of affection from the people who knew Mr. Gottlieb, and I have begun to feel a loss of my own: that, outside of one or two brief post-show exchanges, I never got to know this man who had such a significant impact in the lives of artists in this community.
Here is John Moore's article about Phil Gottlieb and his family.
