RIP Lamar, a steadying influence on the band after Berry's untimely passing.

Kind of like a real life "Apocalypse Now". Glad I got to see Lamar play a couple of times. And he could play. Thanks, Lamar.
"In 1968 Williams was drafted into the United States Army and sent into the Vietnam War. Opposed to the war and to killing in general, Williams went AWOL frequently and wandered around the jungles of South Vietnam, occasionally returning to various units. He was given an honorable discharge in 1970."
