Reports are emerging that drummer Jimmy Cobb, the last surviving musician who played on "Kind Of Blue" by Miles Davis has passed away aged 91, sad news.

Only a few on here will have heard about this wonderful lady. Marina Jason, from Chicago, passed away two weeks ago, from a heart attack. Marina was a huge influence on the Folk Music scene, and was closely involved in the careers of John Prine, Michael Johnson and Bonnie Koloc. She was also a friend and confidant of Linda Thompson.

RIP my precious friend. I'll miss our long conversations... Today hurts, but I can smile, knowing you are finally out of pain.

RIP Steve Priest. Now only Andy Scott left from the Sweet classic line-up. A sad day and another part of my youth gone!

Same here. We were definitely Sweet fans in our house. They had some great hits, Iím sure Ancient Muse bought Little Willy & Coco. RIP Steve. No more Glam Rock weekends at Butlins Sad

Sweet were, I think, my first favourite band. I loved all the glam stuff, but they were my prime choice, even above local heroes Slade.

I was in the habit as a kid, of standing behind the sofa when Top Of The Pops was on and a good rockin' band performed, Where I would mime to the song with my air guitar. I always did Steve's campy bits, especially 'W-W-W-W-We Just Haven't Got A Clue - a-huh'....
I saw Andy's version of the band last year and had a blast. It's a shame they all fell out, they could have maybe had a big comeback like Slade back in the NWOBHM heyday.

Another sad loss.

My favourite one of his was this single, released on Purple Records.

A sad loss. I had Quantum jump's first 2 albums and saw them do a marvellously sweaty gig at the Marquee Club in London  in the late 70s. I'd rather forgotten about them and was unaware of Rupert Hine's talents as a producer

I remember getting mocked on here once before for saying this but I have always had a soft spot for The Pointer Sisters. They made some interesting records before their 80s disco heyday.

They covered an obscure songwriter named Richard Thompson with "Don't Let a Thief Steal Into Your Heart" (on the album Priority, 1979), so we know they had exquisite taste in music. RIP

That was after Bonnie's tenure with the group. However she did appear on Slick/Kantner/Freiberg's "Baron von Tollbooth & The Chrome Nun"

Come to think of it, RT makes some reference to this when introducing the song on Small Town Romance. I thought he was joking.  Roll Eyes
