RIP Joe Gracey - Austin Music Personality

Posted this about Mr. Gracey in my Texas Psych Facebook group:

I got to know Joe Gracey here on Facebook. He emailed me about my Gaelic first name and we struck up a weeks long conversation. Turns out he was a well known radio personality, record producer and bass player from Austin. Anyway, Mr. Gracey passed from cancer recently. He never tooted his own horn with me; he didn't say: "I did *this* and I did *that*". We just talked about other stuff like the origin of my first name and small talk. After hearing that he had passed, I looked him up on Google and learned that he couldn't speak for the last many years; he had lost his vocal chords to cancer. Anyway, he seemed like a cool and classy guy and I was going to invite him into the group.
