    My copy of Cactus "One Way....Or Another" got worn out on my teenage turntable. Rest in peace, dude!

    Well, shoot. I'm usually not one to fall for this crap. I edited the subject, if a mod feels it's best to delete the thread, please do.

    My apologies.

    I’ve been friends with him on Facebook for years and about an hour ago it was posted there that he passed. Unless someone has also hacked his personal account......

    I just saw a post by Carmine Appice mourning Tim Bogert’s passing. Was that real?

    Yes, He's gone. I would say that Carmine is a pretty reliable source.

  17. Tim Bogert (Vanilla Fudge, Cactus) has died

    Well that really sucks, he was one of my all time favorites, and I just posted some stuff about him yesterday here.

    UPDATE: Carmine Appice has confirmed the news that legendary musician Tim Bogert has died at the age of 76. On his socials, Appice wrote:

    My true friend Tim Bogert died today.

    He was like a brother to me. He was my friend for over 50 years.

    Tim was a one of a kind bass player. He inspired many, many bass players worldwide. He was as masterful at shredding as he was holding down a groove, and Tim introduced a new level of virtuosity into rock bass playing. No one played like Tim. He created bass solos that drove audiences to a frenzy every time he played one. And he played a different solo every night. He was the last of the legendary 60’s bass players.

    Tim was a very intelligent person. So intelligent that we would call him “Spock”. You could ask him anything and he would know something about it.

    I loved Tim like a brother. He will be missed very much in my life. I will miss calling him, cracking jokes together, talking music and remembering the great times we had together, and how we created kick-ass music together.

    Perhaps the only good thing about knowing someone close to you is suffering a serious illness, is you have an opportunity to tell them that you love them, and why you love them. I did that, a lot. I was touched to hear it said back to me. Nothing was left unsaid between us and I’m grateful for that. I highly recommend it.

    Rest in peace, my partner. I love you. See you on the other side.
