He told CNN he had no regrets.

“I am content with it. Don’t cry over spilt milk,” he said. “Get up and be a man and do what you have got to do.”

  1. I loved his collaboration with Jimmy Webb. “The Moon’s a Harsh Mistress” (also recorded by Joe Cocker) is the title track on a wonderful album of Webb songs, I think called “Reunion”. I’ll get out my vinyl copy shortly and re-appreciate.
