RIP thread


I read the Wrecking Crew book and I remember him sight reading some songs that he did one take on. Insane.


Hal Blaine was great.


Yeah, a true great . RIP Hal .


Scott Walker. And thus starts the US audience catching up to the UK in terms of listening to his stuff, despite the fact that he was American.



Nipsey Hussle, who had a great name, a great flow, and was doing good things.


Shawn Smith of Brad/Satchel has apparently died in his sleep from complications due to diabetes. Same day as Kurt Cobain and Layne Staley, it would seem. Never really listened to much of his stuff but he had a great voice.


I remember Brad and Satchel, but don’t think I ever saw them. Diabeetus by the looks of it.




I saw Leon Redbone backing up Tom Waits in 1976. He was so great and consistent. Similar to Waits in many respects, he never broke character. Unlike Waits, his style never really changed much… he was that niche.

Here is a double-exposure I shot of both him and Waits - even though it is hard to make out Leon in this shot.


RIP iTunes


Roky Erickson





That’s terrible news.


dog the bounty hunter.


His wife.


Is he claiming to be one to have died to get more sympathy?


Who died?
