Mojo Nixon, the singer, songwriter, and screwball radio personality known for novelty cult hits like “Elvis Is Everywhere” and “Don Henley Must Die,” died on Wednesday aboard a country music cruise. He was 66.

Nixon had been co-hosting the Outlaw Country Cruise, an annual voyage run by the eponymous Sirius XM radio channel where the motor-mouthed musician had made his home for the past two decades, according to a Rolling Stone profile last year. His cause of death was an unspecified cardiac event, according to a Facebook statement.

“How you live is how you should die,” the statement, posted to a page for Nixon’s official documentary. “Mojo Nixon was full-tilt, wide-open, rock hard, root hog, corner on two wheels + on fire… Passing after a blazing show, a raging night, closing the bar, taking no prisoners + a good breakfast with bandmates and friends.”
