Benjamin Orr
Sept. 8 1947-Oct. 3 2000

The Cars just put out a new one this summer -- not sure who the bassist was -- there's also the interesting looking "The New Cars" CD from 5 or so years ago, which Todd Rundgren was a part of & which Ric signed off on...
Their first album at the time I thought was one of the coolest 1st-album releases by a new band in quite some time (the B52' first 1 2, from around this time) -- bands like the Stones & the Who had good ones out then too w/Some Girls & Who Are You -- the ABB had also reformed around this time & released a comeback album etc. -- but I love their 1st album still (Door To Door is a good one too) & classic rock radio can't ruin it for me

Ben -- cancer, at the age of 53 -- a real shame -- RIP, brother

A day late but no tribute thread, much less here, is complete without mention of Mr. Joe Dan Petty
all those pics of touring w/the band -- seeing Grinderswitch open for the ABB one time -- his wife Judi is so sweet & endearing on the Please Call Home DVD
...& one of those tough guys on the back of AFE
RIP, bro

Wilson Pickett
March 18 1941-Jan. 19 2006

What a collaboration -- brother Duane playing on a Wicked Wilson album -- & not only that but doing such a great read of Hey Jude -- all those ones -- Save Me, Toe Hold, My Own Kind of Love etc etc on the Hey Jude album are awesome -- what about Born To Be Wild too, the other cover they did...
RIP, brother Pickett

Lamar Williams
Jan. 14, 1949-Jan. 21 1983

I don't know how Lamar got overlooked before --

He was a wonderful contributor -- he came in in a tough situation, and had little to show for his tenure w/the band when it fell apart in 1976 -- his time w/Sea Level came to an unhappy end as well -- & all the while he contributed so much -- the business end of the music business is extremely harsh & unforgiving

Rest In Peace, brother Lamar Williams -- take care and know that you are loved

Or this gentleman
Mr. Jim Capaldi (Aug. 2 1944-Jan. 28 2005)
must've been Jan. brain hibernation of some sort
side 2 of Low Spark is always a favorite anyway, but on a Sat. morn, with a nice day coming -- Rock n Roll Stew is & always has been my favorite one -- he is so brilliant on that one, as is the whole band...
Jim and Dave Mason were going to play a show in Boston in more recent years (somewhere between 2000-05 or so), but it never came off -- woulda been there
RIP, bro

You know you're old when it's the 10th anniversary of the passing of one of the great musicians of all time, who like so many of his folk brethren had such a long yet under-the-radar career
Dave Van Ronk
June 30, 1936-Feb. 10, 2002
have never heard his take of Statesboro Blues -- his cover of Champion Jack Dupree's "Goin Down Slow" is his along w/that whiskey voice & every bit as affecting as the Duane version we all know & love too
we had his records around the house a long long time back -- his passing compelled refamiliarity & he's a great musician -- in the ranks with the Utah Phillips, Phil Ochs, Tom Paxtons, Bill Morrisseys & so many more of the genre...
RIP, bro

Semper Fi
It's all you can think of when it comes to Joseph R. "Red Dog" Campbell, especially on this, the first year of his passing -- a lot of people came together to love & appreciate Red Dog w/the benefit gigs, visits etc & that was great to see
He had that unique view of a fan's enthusiasm just like us, coupled w/"working for" the band -- we're so lucky that he shared all his love in his book & the DVDs etc.
RIP, brother

RORY GALLAGHER
March 2 1948-June 14 1995

There's often a lot of Rory mention here on the boards
& abbfan47 & lonomon in this thread

I'll admit it -- I have no Taste
although -- is there really any such thing as a "bad" Rory album -- or "Bad" any album for that matter
if Photofinish and Top Priority are any indication -- oh my gosh -- what trio playing -- guitar bass drms man -- Rory was one of the undisputed greats -- RIP, brother

An oversight that's made the thread threadbare
Warren Zevon
Jan. 24 1947-Sept. 7 2003
of that danged cancer -- unbelievable -- just like Zappa

Warren opened for the Dead one time around 1977-78 or so at Dartmouth in Hanover NH -- all that night you heard it from time to time on the campus -- "Aahoooh" -- he played WOLondon twice, tho that's a foggy memory talking

I have the biography his widow wrote -- at the time she lived in Barre Vt. & maybe does still

Lawyers Guns & Money
well what else is there to say
RIP, bro

Charlie on his website mentions the one year anniversary of the passing of Taz DiGregorio

That had to be tough for Charlie -- 67 years old -- he'd been there the whole time, right/almost from the beginning of the CDB -- 40 years of working/traveling -- impossible to replace -- what a great player, like on Redneck Fiddlin' Man, his great playing on the 1975 Volunteer Jam -- it's endless -- a Northboro Mass. boy who made good & did more good sharing his music...
RIP, brother Taz
