Well...more bad news...While I wasn't actually a big fan, this is way too young for a guy with supposedly a lot of greatness ahead of him... :(

He did have a huge hit with this song that sampled Sting's "Shape of My Heart"...



Sting thought it was a "beautiful interpretation"...

To recall the title of one of his EP's, this was "too soon"...R.I.P., young man! :(

He definitely won't let us forget him...

Well, we must say goodbye to another one...Her band was one of my all-time favorites and I still have all my old cassette singles and 45's...I'm talking about the one and only Marie Fredrikssen of Roxette!

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/12/10/arts ... -dead.html

In her honor, here are some of my favorites from the Roxette catalog...










It's "almost unreal" that she's gone, but she will always be remembered! R.I.P. Marie! :(

I miss Roxette and wish they'd had more LPs and hits over here. RIP.

Well, they did have 9 Top 10 hits and 3 #1's in Canada, but I get what you mean...Some of my favorites in their catalog never charted or never became huge hits..."Sleeping In My Car", "How Do You Do" and "Church Of The Heart" became big hits in Canada and around the world, but did almost nothing here in the States, for example...I like "Run To You", too, but it didn't chart at all here...When you look at the breadth of their box set, one might be forgiven for thinking they were a bit underrated...In any case, Marie had a one-of-a-kind voice that will surely be missed! RIP! :(

I'm also sorry to hear about the loss of Marie Fredrikssen of Roxette at such a young age. :shock:

Gershon Kingsley of famed electronic music duo Perrey and Kingsley passes at age 97. These guys could lift me out of a funk anytime. I knew of their work long before I knew who they were. I wore out my Kindergarten teacher's Hot Butter 45 of Popcorn before I was 5. I remember Barnyard in Orbit being a theme to a childrens show on TV in the 70's, I think It was the Uncle Bobby Show. Kingsley also wrote the theme to WGBH's title card too! I think they were used almost as much in the 70's as the Alan Parsons Pyramids LP was in the 80's for TV theme music. Mr. Perrey passed in 2016.

Now THAT sucks! I only know him from his solo career, but if you like him, I would look into the works of Beaver & Krause...I have copies of Gershon's "Music To Moog By" and a reissue of his "First Moog Quartet" album, too!

Weird stuff, but are worth purchasing if you're a Moog or electronic music fan...8)

VM, if you know his solo stuff, I would lay money that you've heard the duo stuff too at some time in your life. They only had 2 LP's with a twofer that spanned all but a couple tracks on Vanguard. They shouldn't be expensive as they were big sellers. I have Beaver and Krause on a couple LPs as well and enjoy them. Anyone who likes Moog and similar instruments and favours ping pong stereo effects, these guys are for you!

I love "Popcorn." I first heard it (The Hot Butter version) in a Pampers commercial and it took me about 20 years to find out the name of it. I found it randomly in a YouTube video of "Popular Songs (Instrumentals?) Nobody Knows the Names of." That melody was so hard to forget, that it was frustrating it took so long to find the song. I'm glad I got to rediscover the song while he was alive. RIP.

Sad to hear about Jack Scott's passing...He was such a nice man...He was actually signing autographs at the first record show my vinyl mentor and I went to together...My vinyl mentor waited in a long line...Everyone else had some memorabilia for him to sign, but when my mentor got to the front of the line, he just asked to shake Mr. Scott's hand and thank him for the music! And so, I also thank him for the music! =D>

And what music!







A man who will truly be missed! R.I.P. Jack! :(
