    Sad to hear this, he was a legend and a true character. For some reason, a false rumor that he died passed around a few years ago and I believed it for a few hours, then the truth came out that he was alive and well. Mr Swamp just laughed and said " So he was just playing possum?"

    RIP George, you and the the story of your lawnmower are legendary and will never be forgotten.

    One of a handful of voices this country has produced that truly will never die.

    George Jones, who has died aged 81, was perhaps the most naturally gifted singer/songwriter in the history of American country music; his voice, capable of expressing powerful emotion without ever crossing the line into melodrama, was ideally suited to ballads of heartbreak and loneliness.
