Talented fellow.  I really like his playing on the first Flash album, too, although I would have engineered and produced differently.

Re: R.I.P. Thread

Late notice on this one, but worth mentioning for any Canadians here, Stompin' Tom Connors passed last week.  Wrote some every iconic tunes that most Canadians know and can sing along with.  Saw him live back in the '70's.  I thought he was old then!

I happened to be working on Prince Edward Island this past weekend, our job site was a 5 min drive from where Tom called home.

Also heard yesterday that another legend is lost to us;  Alvin Lee of Ten Years After fame passed away in Spain aged 68. Complications after routine surgery is the only cause of death given so far. A guy blessed with pin-up good looks and explosive guitar playing, certainly made his mark at Woodstock. His most recent album was released only last August and he was due to play along side Johnny Winter next month is Paris.

Very sad to hear to hear this.  I literally gasped when I read Mike's news and feel gutted.  Alvin was such a great musician and TYA was/is one of my all-time favorite bands.  Brought to you and taken away by helicopter.  RIP Mr. Lee.

Put the earbuds on and listen to His epic A Space In Time (1971) in its entirety.

Peter Banks was a great guitarist in a great band.  Him and Tony Kaye should not be over shadowed by their replacements.

We faithfully watch the reruns on PBS and laugh every time. I trust he is being served to his utmost delight. Another great one lost to us. RIP Captain Peacock.

Re: R.I.P. Thread

Horror novelist James Herbert passed yesterday; only a week or so after his 23rd book, Ash was published. Back in the day, I devoured books like The Rats, The Fog, The Spear, etc and still enjoy dipping back into his works.

Sad loss.

All those who believe in psychokenesis raise my hand........

Re: R.I.P. Thread

And only 69 years old. He hadn't written a book for a number of years and then Ash was released. Have read all his books. Sad loss indeed.

Sorry !  So hard to lose our furry friends

Re: R.I.P. Thread

George Ross Watt, popularly known as Big George, who has died aged 54, was a blues guitarist and singer who took a sound forged in the bars of Glasgow to the home of the blues in America and toured his music across the world without ever fully receiving the recognition that his talent and his band, Big George and the Business, deserved.

At the Montreal Blues Festival in 1992, Big George and the Business sat above blues stars including Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry's legendary pianist Johnny Johnson, Buddy Guy and Robert Jnr Lockwood on the festival's posters and t-shirts.
