The picture I saw of him, I knew who he was right away.  Must have been an older picture of him.  It said he was 83.

 

I always like to hear him sing, and sang along with him.

Loved him way back when we listened on radios.

 

Sad to know he is gone.

@qualitygal  Very sad to hear.  I still hear his music on the radio.

The next time that I hear salt and ice together, it better be in a margarita!

Trini was popular when I was growing.  May he rest in peace.

If COVID was the cause of death, the news is even more awful. I'll always remember the touching "Lemon Tree."

My heart is broken.

 

He seemed to be such a sweet fellow.

 

I enjoyed his music when I was young.

 

May he rest in peace!

I liked Peter Paul and Mary's versions of Lemon Tree and If I Had A Hammer better. I didn't realize he was still alive until I heard this news earlier today. I hadn't heard anything about him in years. Not a favorite of mine but I'm sorry he has passed.

 Loved his version of If I Had A Hammer....had the 45.  His music was just FUN to listen to!  The article I read said he died of Covid complications.  Very sad....may he Rest In Peace.
