"Writing about music is like dancing about architecture"

its certainly been a sad week in the music industry.
on the funny side though: all these musos are dying young,yet chuck Berry collapses and lives..hail,hail,rock 'n' roll.
God couldnt take him, but has taken three already to replace him....could that be his value in the scheme of things? i think so
Jeez I cant believe this when I read it. He was only in his early 50s. Has certainly put a damper the evening. I'm a big fan of Japan and have one of Mick's solo albums called 'The Tooth Mother' which is excellent. Great bassist. RIP

Good player, but he did have a liking for fretless basses.

I loathe fretless basses...
