Sail On, Whaleshark

Post by CaptainP »

Erik "Whaleshark" Pietsch passed away today. For anyone who ever encountered him at one of his shows, or performing in the parking lot of a Jimmy Buffett show, he was instantly your friend. Such a great, easygoing guy. He'll be missed.

I'm going to mix some Captain Morgan and some Parrot Bay in his honor.

He was a fantastic performer, and even more fun to have a beer with!

Crud, he was such a fun guy, I feel so lucky that we got to see him play and meet him.

Thanks for letting us know, Captain P.

Sail on, Erik. :(
A most mysterious calling harbour
So far, but yet, so near
Where I see the day
When my hair's full gray
and I finally...disappear. BUT NOT YET!!
