Just heard he passed.
Kelly Holland was the prototypical rock vocalist IMO, not many people cover their songs because a) they were never HUGE and b) nobody in the bands around me could pull off his vocals.
Cry of Love was a formative part of my development in my younger life....That band was a bass player's wet dream...
Robert Kearns played a Gibson LP bass when I saw them 20 years ago at the Bijou Theatre in Knoxville TN. They were at the pinnacle of their short career as a band, I've never been that close to something that powerful and dead nuts on in my life.
RIP Kelly, you were awesome man. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4kIRhWGry-A
