Mike Pinder, the last surviving original Moody Blues member, 82

A sad loss. I regret not seeing the Moodies classic line up live; although they made some good stuff after Mike left, nothing matched up to their "core 7" albums.

Not a surprise he had been ill for several years, but a sad loss.

In the 90's Alias Ron Kavana were just about the most exciting act on the folk club scene. Almost joined the Pogues on more than one occasion apparently.

The Cropredy set was Great. He also did the first Swarbaid

The '91 Cropredy was just about the perfect one for me.  I've seen lots of acts at Cropredy I enjoyed more but it held together really well over the day and half.  Really cohesive lineup (which must have cost about 2% of what the current ones do).  And that Fairport set was one for the ages.

Musician and producer (although he hated the term), Steve Albini. List of credits too long to mention.

RIP Steve Albini.

Producer of albums by Nirvana, The Pixies, PJ Harvey, Page & Plant, and many more.

Described himself as a "recording engineer" rather than a "producer". Used organic and old-school recording methods wherever possible. Kept a grounded ethic by working on recordings for a set fee rather than royalties as uninterested in the greater machine of the music industry.
 
An outspoken sonic guru, provocative, always had something interesting to say about the current state of music. The kind of auteur who held opinions you wouldn't necessarily agree with, but would defend his right to hold.

Another interesting and talented character leaves us...going to listen to PJ Harvey's "Rid Of Me" album in his honour.

Sad to hear this. RK was a great songwriter and always good value live. His "Young Ned of the Hill" was always a highlight of Pogues live shows

Saxophonist David Sanborn, age 78, from prostate cancer.

He played on everything from "Young Americans" to "Still Crazy After All These Years." I fondly remember when Sanborn was a regular Friday night addition to David Letterman's studio band, and occasionally took over when Paul Shaffer was elsewhere. (Of course, they always played "Young Americans" when he was present.) He was an incredibly tasteful player, and I will miss him.

Very sad. He played on so much great stuff from the 60s onward. One of my favourites is his unlikely appearance on the second album by German new wave band Nena which is called ?. He totally owns the title track and also the song Lass Mir Dein Pirat Sein.

John Barbata of Jefferson Starship


I saw this - very sad. John Barbata was with The Turtles before Jefferson Airplane/Jefferson Starship, and I believe he's the one happily twirling his sticks as The Turtles lip sync "Happy Together" in this 1967 clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mRCe5L1imxg I read that he was badly injured in a car accident in 1978, which led to his retirement. R.I.P.

Important not to forget his spell in CSNY.

Keith Riley of Shape of the Rain. Their 1971 album Riley, Riley , Wood and Waggett is a classic which I have played regularly over the years.
