And when he finished speakin'
He turned back toward the window
Crushed out his cigarette
And faded off to sleep
And somewhere in the darkness
The gambler he broke even
But in his final words
I found an ace that I could keep

This song by him is especially poignant. Just listen to the lyrics.

Shirley "The Gambler Cashes Out" or similar would have been a better thread title? He was clearly a wiser card player than Lemmy, who went all-in with a single ace.

As a Big Lebowski fan, Just Dropped In is a perennial favourite. Did he do more tunes like that, or was it a total anomaly among his discography?

It is a bit of an anomaly. Maybe these.

Been listening to 'The Further Adventures of the Gatlin Boys' today for the first time in ages.
Great album but I can see why it was banned.
