    This was the first Fontella Bass tune I heard:




    It might be a good idea if from here on this thread is hijacked to be used whenever a good musician dies, instead of creating a new thread each time. I'll start with the next post...

    Virtuoso guitarist Bob Brozman died a week and a half ago. One of the best slide guitarists I have ever seen/heard. Met him most times I saw him play, and he was a complete gentleman.

    Sounds like a good idea to use one thread for those who have left us.

    The RIP threads don't usually last long, I don't see a problem with each artist getting their moment in the spotlight.

    That's all well and good but pretty soon the forum will be full of short threads for dead musicians. It'd be easy enough to search the thread for posts regarding your favourite dead muso. The fewer threads in a forum the better in my experience.

    I hate losing musicians whose music was such an integral part of my youth. :(

    Oh no :( That's such sad news, I am a big fan of The Doors. I also have a strange connection to them, in that the song "Hello I Love You" is about my grandmother. Jim Morrison was continually asking her for a date and she wasn't having any of it :p

    I recall reading a post about it in the TTD death pool thread at the den. If you join the traders den, you can not only get some good audience recordings but keeping up with music news becomes easier.

    This is from my neck of the woods. We autocross in the paddock of the racetrack turned private road. Of course some idiots still take their cars out there and race the entire track. That's what happened here.

    While this is not a person, the venue Maxwell's in Hoboken has hosted many music greats; Nirvana, the Boss, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Smashing Pumpkins to name a few. Even though I've never been there, I'm saddened by it just the same. Reading the article just gives you a sense that times, they are a changing.

    Maxwell's to close at the end of July - MSN Music News
