    Wow... over 40 musicians lost in '14.

    I was most bummed by the losses of:

    Jack Bruce
    Glenn Cornick &
    Johnny Winter

    Michedelic MId-Century Modern

    Ooooops, major egg on my face. The Lou and Iggy album covers were done by Mick Rock; however, Childers still delivered many classic 'behind-the-scenes' shots of that era.
  4. Does Robin Williams count? He made music too...in a sense...through comedy.

    Didn't know about Joe Lala. That is personal sad. He was dating my first wife when I met her. He was the drummer for a group called The Motions out of Florida. They were playing a club called The Jolly Roger in Ocean View, Virginia. We were playing across the street at The WingDing. We became friends. Last time I saw him was in 1975 in Nashville. He was doing percussion and backup vocals with Steven Stills and Manassas. Our tour paths crossed and I had the night off, so I went with him and the band to the auditorium at Vanderbilt where they were playing. On the way, Joe bet Steven $100 he wouldn't sing the words to Love the One You're With as:
    "When you can't beat up the one you love, punch the one your with." Joe lost the bet.

    So what I get from this is banjo players live the longest

    The day after Joe Cocker died I sat down and learned his version of You Can Leave Your Hat On.

    I fell in love with this song within the first thirty seconds of hearing it when it came out....Great fun to play and I'll usually extend the ending then add a verse and a chorus or two just too keep the goodness going.Make that four and half minute song stay around as long as possible.

    Can't help but feel a little better after that.

    The first time I heard his rendition of that song I said damn, I wish I'd thought of that!
