Bonnie "Prince" Billy - Brownsville Girl
Sam Shepard died on July 27 at his Kentucky home, following a battle with ALS. His family did not announce his death to Broadway World until July 31. The late American playwright and actor, was also a musician. That explains his long relationship with Patti Smith, as well as his work with Bob Dylan. The two collaborated on one of Dylan’s wildest songs, “Brownsville Girl.” You can read almost all of his collaborations with Dylan here.
NSDLD remembers Sam with a version of Brownsville Girl by a very remarkable artist: Bonnie "Prince" Billy Oldham.
Sam was survived by his children, Jesse, Hannah and Walker, and his sisters Sandy and Roxanne. “The family requests privacy at this difficult time,” spokesman Chris Boneau told Broadway World.
