Max Roach Dead at 83
Aww man, terrible hear.
I was just listening to him a few days ago on a mixed jazz compilation a friend had put out, his drumming leapt out of the car speakers and reminded me of what an original he was and how long he had been on the scene.
I'm lucky to have seen him with a few times.
Check the article date, folks. Been gone since 2007:
Jazz World Mourns Loss of Max Roach
Jazz Musician Max Roach Dies at 83
Max Roach | Biography & History | AllMusic
Max Roach died almost 10 years ago. For some reason this article keeps popping up; I've seen it on my Facebook feed a couple of times this week.
I think it's because it's the anniversary of his death (Aug 16th)
I went to see Miles Davis' tombstone in Woodlawn Cemetery in the Bronx, NY a few years ago and Max's grave is right there next to Miles'.
Thanks for the clarification, not sure how I missed that!
I was going to say he has been dead for a a while
I was sure I heard that he had died some time back...
But then there is that celebrity that does & you were sure they already had passed--but they hadn't.
So even though this didn't just happen--here is a Max Roach video I always enjoy watching & listening to.
May have been ten years ago but that's one drummer who TB wouldn't fire.
He might have fired some of us though
