Just as with his fellow great bluesman Albert King, it's hard to believe that 19 years have passed since the passing of Mr. Willie Dixon (Jan. 29, 1992) -- how many bands were inspired to get their start from the music of Mr. Dixon (you know Led Zeppelin is forever grateful )

Mr. Willie Dixon, who I've always thought is to the blues what Charles Mingus was to jazz -- a great bassist whose songs live on

Rest in peace, Willie Dixon

RIP Mr. Billy Jones (Nov 20 1949-Feb. 7 1995)
he contributed so much to our universal language of music -- those albums of the triple-guitar attack w/he, Hughie & Henry Paul were, & Are, tremendous listening

Mr. Mike Bloomfield (July 28 1943-Feb. 15 1981)

Mike and Nick Gravenites produced the song "You Reap What You Sow" from Otis Rush's Mourning in the Morning album -- Duane was one of three guitarists on the session along of course with Otis, and Jimmy Johnson, while the PBBBand's Mark Naftalin was one of the two keyboard players

that may have been the closest these two musical giants, Duane and Mike, ever came to crossing paths in the studio

What a player -- what a cool person too -- his animated (to say the least) intro of a then-unknown Johnny Winter (he called him Winters) on The Lost Bloomfield-Kooper tapes -- the great version of One Way Out from that album -- IMO he was seldom better than on Nick's My Labors album -- Moon Tune -- what singing & playing

& of course his work in the Butterfield Blues Band

gone much too soon -- how can 30 years have passed

a tremendous musician

Rest in peace, bro

Little Walter, born Marion Walter Jacobs (May 1, 1930 February 15, 1968), was an American blues harmonica player whose revolutionary approach to his instrument has earned him comparisons to Charlie Parker and Jimi Hendrix for innovation and impact on succeeding generations. His virtuosity and musical innovations fundamentally altered many listeners' expectations of what was possible on blues harmonica. Little Walter's body of work earned him a spot in The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2008 making him the only artist ever to be inducted specifically for his work as a harmonica player.

I was born on the day he died.

R.I.P. Little Walter

That's a real affecting tribute to Little Walter lonomon -- I know he's great # 1, & # 2, don't know his music!

What would life be for us music heads without a little AC/DC now and then

Thank you Mr. Bon Scott (July 9 1946-Feb. 19 1980) -- those 1970s AC/DC albums live on -- us who know those records, & those who have the Bonfire box set, enjoy & appreciate this great vocalist/musician

thinking of a brother, Red Dog -- in that better place

Would also like to pay tribute to one of the most unique musicians of all times
in the era that Red Dog/the ABB came from, anything was possible musically -- seeing an elderly black gentleman, Mr. Papa John Creach (May 28 1917-Feb. 22, 1994), who seemed to step off the pages of a backporch bayou jam into playing psych-rock music w/a bunch of stoned out hippies, was not only quite natural but just a very unique blending of the fiddle into rock music of that ilk...

it was wonderful! the live cut of Milk Train" (from 30 Seconds Over Winterland); all the wonderful playing he did with Hot Tuna; and indeed, later on with the Jeff. Starship on those excellent mid-70s albums

what great times -- brought about by great music -- specifically that of Papa John Creach -- I can still see him sitting in that old car with the other three Hot Tuna members from their Burgers album

Getting off work at 11 p.m., it's midnight on the boards here -- making it convenient to post here -- about my musical heroes

"There's an old man, asittin' in a rocking chair
He's got the best beagle dog in the county, I've been told
But his shotgun done got too rusty
That ol beagle dog, he done grown a little too old

"As he stares up into heaven
I'm sure I know the reason why
He's athinkin' about that promised land
In them Blue Ridge Mountain Skies"

For this and for so much more -- thank you, Mr. Toy Caldwell (Nov. 13 1947-Feb. 25 1993)
nothing but brilliance -- simple brilliance -- a guitar player like no other --

Mr. Buddy Miles (Sept 5 1947-Feb 26, 2008)

He lived a long full life -- of course best known for his work with Hendrix -- what about that Carlos Santana/Buddy Miles Live! album --with the orange & red cver -- recorded in a volcanic crater somewhere -- his recordings with the Electric Flag...

& in on a jam among some amazing musicians -- Gregg Allman, Berry Oakley and Johnny Winter, on Wasted Words -- the last minute or so of that song is just Buddy and Johhny, blazing away in an awesome 2-way jam

the drum roll at the end of Them Changes still blows me away -- what a great player was Mr. Buddy Miles -- 3 years go by a lot quicker than they used to

Mr. Richard Manuel (April 4 1943-March 4 1986)

Boy did I ever feel this one (didn't we all) -- so very very sad & unfortunate

with their first two albums & Rock Of Ages -- what other music could ever be necessary?

Richard was great

Thank you Richard Manuel -- you'll never be forgotten

Really remember feeling the passing of Ron "Pigpen" McKernan (Sept. 5 1947-March 8 1973) -- was really getting into the Dead then -- Europe 72 -- the side w/Sugar Mag, Pigpen's Mr. Charlie, & Tenn. Jed...
He was to the Dead what Brian Jones was to the Stones -- original member, a lot of early input, then the sound drifted more into different areas later on...
those first 3 live Dead albums -- & Workingman's & A.Beauty -- what incredible music, & it wouldn't have been what it was without Mr. McKernan -- RIP bro

The passing of great vocalist Brad Delp on this day four years ago in Atkinson, NH was strange -- no sign at all that he had been depressed or anything.

What a revelation that first Boston alum was -- heavy metal-like instrumentation, with CSNY-type vocals -- his work on all those vocal tracks remains amazing all these decades later

I always wanted like mad to see Beatlejuice -- friends who did said it was the best of all the Beatles cover bands.

What a singer & musician he was -- RIP Brad Delp -- you are missed

Blind Faith
Low Spark
EC's Rainbow Concert
the Fathers & Sons album

the bass playing of Mr. Ric Grech (Nov. 1 1947-March 17 1990) helped to make all these records the classics they are -- he participated in more jams I like, than I could possibly name off the top of my head -- never forgotten through his music

March 19, 1982 -- the date always sticks out, when Mr. Randy Rhoades had his tragic airplane accident -- they announced it over SHOM FM in Montreal, a station that played a lot of Ozzy -- first heard his playing on the radio on Crazy Train, immediately thinking that is some guitar playing -- the Tribute album remains a wonderful tribute to this musician who had so much more in him -- RIP Randy

Canned Heat -- what a band of the times it was -- that sitar & intro to their famous one On The Road Again still sounds so cool -- & their live chops were the real thing, as Topanga Corral shows -- RIP bro -- your contributions are never forgotten

nor those of another musician whose music gave rise to a whole new sound/movement/category -- Mr. Kurt Cobain (Feb. 20 1967-April 5 1994) -- Nirvana's music & their Nevermind album -- RIP bro

Mr. Phil Ochs (Dec. 19 1940-April 9 1976

If the only thing he ever did in his life was those first two albums, "All The News That's Fit To Sing," and "I Ain't Marching Anymore," they would be (and are) the best possible examples of "topical" songwriting

The "There But For Fortune" from 1989 or so, includes highlights from those records as well as a live performance

Phil would have a field day with all these current events, and the various wars in Libya, and other places

Visiting the R&R Hall of Fame some years ago, it had on display a letter written by Woody Guthrie to Phil's family, registering his deep upset at the news of his passing

He found a vehicle for his passion, his anger and intensity, through lyrics -- he was one of a kind and his work still resonates -- "Here's To The State Of Mississippi," "The Power and the Glory" -- "One More Parade" -- and on and on -- his work can't become outdated

RIP sir

You kinow punk rockers everywhere are pausing today to remember the godfather of them all,
Mr. Joey Ramone (May 19 1951-April 15 2001)
Joey had a tough battle with lymphoma -- a hard infirmity
the Ramones-Mania 2-LP set has many of the greats -- the Ramones -- punk's answer to AC/DC -- those 2-3 min soundalike blasts of music that are so good -- their album Acid Eaters, in which they covered, and covered Fantastic too, many 60's psych songs, is great -- they sound like themselves
Rest In Peace Joey

"Hey looky there, 'cross the street..."
Cars and girls -- what else was there for teens of the 1950s (or any era for that matter)
Eddie Cochran (May 1930-April 17 1960)
I would've been bummed for weeks had I been one of his fans, hearing about his death at age 21 in a car wreck in England
My Eddie album is a good one, a 1983 release, all in mono! -- 20 Flight Rock, C'Mon Everybody, of course SBlues -- Eddie's version of LTSally rocks out -- great liner notes by Brian Setzer, who writes well about his hero, incl. notations by each of the songs -- he pays tribute to Eddie in his Stray Cats song "Gene & Eddie" from the Blast Off album
Another great tribute to Eddie is by the Steve Gibbons Band with their song "Eddy Vortex"

The Who, Blue Cheer, T Rex, the 100s of others -- they could all cover Summertime Blues -- but no one will ever measure up to the master -- the king of all cool cats back in the day -- Mr. Eddie Cochran

Felix Pappalardi, Dec. 30 1939-April 17 1983
This was a sad day -- to think that Gail Collins, who did all the wonderful artwork on those Mountain albums, could have done this
Felix was awesome -- no one else had the sound he had with that big bass rig of his -- and what a voice -- a great songwriter -- helped put Cream on the map with his producing of their albums

Huhwah -- 20 years???
no matter
How I would like to have seen Steve Marriott live -- A Humble Pie youtube was posted some months ago, confirming even more what is widely known anyway about this awesome musician -- he is a locked-in-and-more musician on that video -- singer/songwriter/guitarist, w/few peers IMO --
a tragic untimely death in a house fire -- awful
Rest In Peace, Brother

I had a killer stereo around the time of Where We All Belong came out -- a Luxman integrated amp, an almost top of the line Dual turntable, & awesome JBL L65 speakers -- oh my gosh, Tommy's brief solo on 24 Hrs. -- would crank it up to the nines, & What A Sound -- it remains one of the best-recorded bass solos ever --
Thank you for everything Tommy -- you are missed, & not forgotten

And my favorite vocalist of all time - James Dewar.
