What happened to him?
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

He had a stroke.

Thanks for the heads up.
That's horrible.

IIRC it started with severe heart failure and he threw a clot and had the stroke.  Such a talented man with an incredible voice.

I saw him in concert twice during his peak.  Awesome and patriotic.  Alcohol demons were his nemeses.  And Rap is right - he had serious cardiac problems which led to a severe stroke.  :patriot: :0001:

For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

He may never be what he was, but Dick Clark managed a comeback and knowing Travis's style it wouldn't be out of the question.
