Correction: "You 're no Good" was recorded by Dee Dee Warwick, not Dionne, her sister. And yes we all know the popular Linda Ronstadt version

This is a lost relative. I know very little about him, and unfortunately the obituary says little about him except for his songwriting, which I already knew. I'm looking for someone who knew him personally. Anything you can share with me about my cousin,, I would appreciate learning. Email me at [email protected]
Thank you.

I knew Clint and though I didn't get up to Denton to see him the last few years to my regret....I miss him. He was an awesome guy. Had a unique, low friendly confident voice, played his steinway wonderfully (and would let my wife play it on occasion). He loved music...not surprisingly. I met him via his interest in Macintosh computers in 1985 or 1986. He was just a neat good guy (and he through the best Christmas parties me or my wife have ever attended).
