Facebook has it Ben Renbourn,  son of the late John, has passed away.


Just seen that.  Sad.  Was he a musician too?  I went to school with his (I think) older brother Joel.  I'd be very interested if anybody has any contact with him?


Update:  I've just found a friend of his, who has given me contact details

From Joni Mitchellcom

Lyle Mays passed away this morning in Los Angeles. Lyle was an integral part of Joni's 1979 tour with Pat Metheny, Jaco, Michael Brecker, and Don Alias. He and Pat's hauntingly beautiful transition between Amelia and Hejira still stands as one of the highlights of the tour video release Shadows and Light. Lyle was a member of the Pat Metheny Group for many years, providing arrangements, orchestration, and the harmonic and metric backbone of the group's musical signature.

It was this album that got me into Jaco and Lyle and Pat's PMG stuff and solo work.
A very atmospheric style, not forsaking feel for technique.
