45 is so young. 30, way too young. Thankfully Jeff did alot in his 30 years that we can still appreciate and love today. I hope I never run out of bootlegs or unreleased recordings.

: What is your favorite investment quote?
A Spanish quote translated: “You won’t get anything that you don’t ask for?” People can’t complain about not having something that you didn’t try to get. In general I am sensitive to people with negative outlooks.
