    Decenber 5: Bob Berg killed instantly in a car accident in East Hampton, NY. Cement truck jackknifed on his side-wife even with seat belt thrown out but ok with some broken bones.

    Damn. Painful but fast, with your spouse at your side.
  2. Bob Berg came to my college when I was a freshman. He played a concert with the Big Band (which I wasn't in) and did some rehearsals\jams with the combos, so I got to play with him. I was a clueless kid and I aprreciated the opportunity to play with such an amazing musician. His concert with our Big Band blew me away. I'd seen a lot of local guys, and our jazz director was a hell of an alto player, but this was the first time I realized in person what a big leauger sounded like. It was one of those musical experiences you never forget. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. What a tragic loss.
