Sad. One of the absolute greats, and now he's gone!
And in honor of the man, this...One of the greats singing one of the greats! :P



Of course, in a more traditional vein, here is the great Wanda De Sah (Thanks, BMRR!) doing a favorite that Joao composed...



Don't forget his daughter Bebel, too! =D>



Of course, I have a thing for the Sergio Mendes version...



In any case, Joao was definitely one of the greats of bossa nova and will certainly be missed!! Rest In Peace... :(

Two days ago, the world lost a great example of how we can all get along: Johnny Clegg, aka the White Zulu.

Wow, Fred! I didn't even see this and I just posted a Meters tune on my "It Should Have Been A Hit" thread... :shock:

All I can say is that if you're a jazz funeral player in New Orleans, you'll never be unemployed...First Fats Domino in 2017...Then Dr. John and Dave Bartholomew this year! :cry:

In any case, in honor of the great Art, some funky stuff for you guys! Enjoy! 8)

Larry Taylor of Canned Heat has passed away. As well as Canned Heat Larry was a session player with lots of credits.

A lot of people don't realize that he was a member of The Moondogs first and he was the brother of Ventures' guitarist Mel Taylor...I like to collect James Bond themes on 45', so I have Mel's version of "Diamonds Are Forever"...Larry, meanwhile, played guitar for legends like Chuck Berry and Jerry Lee Lewis, as well as playing bass on this huge hit here for The Monkees...



Here's a funky one I like that he did with the great Harvey Mandel...Enjoy! :D



I also dig his work on Bobby Hart's solo album here (Bobby Hart also plays the autoharp on "Last Train...", by the way...)...




R.I.P. to "The Mole"! :(

I did want to also note the passing of comedian Kip Addotta on the 13th of August at the age of 75...Here's one of his biggest hits, for which I have the 45'...

So many good albums and singles he performed on, too, Fred...Here is a sampling of his session guitar work...


























R.I.P. to one of the greatest! :(

I also wanted to note the passing of songwriter LaShawn Daniels at the young age of 41...

You might recognize his work here, writing and co-writing some huge hits in the 90's and 2000's...










R.I.P. to him, as well... :(

With great surprise and sadness, I read today that Eddie Money has passed away at the too young age of 70. One of the stalwart "sounds great at any time of day" artists, he will definitely be missed. Thankful to have several of his albums, which will get some play tonight in memory. Thank you, and Rest in Paradise. :(

Two days ago, Sept 11, Daniel Johnston passed away aged 58. Amazing artist.

This is one of my favourites, with Daniel on the phone and Yo La Tengo in the radio studio. Magnificent.

I am sad to hear of "The Money Man"'s passing, AOR...I guess his health wasn't so good recently, either...But, they didn't call him "The Money Man" for nothing, since every tune he put out was nothing but a gold mine of pop richness! And here are but a few reminders of his greatness...I guarantee you'll all know these or will want to, after hearing them! :D




He explains the genesis of that song here, too...



And then, of course, the BIG one!



And more about that one, too...



And then, there are these, too...









He even tried disco for a minute! :shock:



One of my favorites was this one from 1989...



Many people don't know that it was a cover from Jennifer Holliday a year earlier...Maybe not as good or as polished as Eddie's version, but an interesting listen nonetheless...



Three songs that IMO should have done much better are these that hit the lower rungs of The Hot 100...Check 'em out...





And he even had a new one this year!



So much good stuff!



In any case, R.I.P. to the man who always opened the summer concert season here in Clarkston, MI. at the DTE Energy Music Theatre (formerly Pine Knob Music Theatre)...He was here last year again and even his kids have gotten into the act! :)



He will always be missed terribly by his many fans and condolences to his family, as well...One thing I can say is that we'll always have the music and I don't know about you guys, but I feel like breaking out my Eddie Money albums and 45's and checking out all the non-hits! Lots of greatness on those, for sure! 8)
