In addition to seeing JW in the early ‘70s as my first concert as I mentioned above, I saw him again at a small venue just a couple of years before the end of his life. He had to be helped out onto the stage and sat on a chair the entire time. I wasn’t expecting much, but as soon as he started to play, the old JW was laying it down. Given his health, it wasn’t a long show. I waited for a time outside the venue with the couple of friends I was with and at one point he exited the building through a side door with his entourage and got into a vehicle. We were within about 20’ of him., said nothing, just observed. He sure seemed frail.
