Beat me to ita-hard-days-night-ringo-8 I won’t say ‘rest in peace’, because, as has been noted, he wasn’t exactly a good person, but his contributions to music will nonetheless remain important and influential. Fans here aren’t necessarily huge on his Beatles production (I like it more than most), but his mid 60s work was truly groundbreaking.

Agreed – celebrate the man’s work, and the stellar performances he got from the amazing musicians and technicians who worked for him, one single at a time.

GEORGE: In fact, The Detroit Sound. JOHN: In fact, yes. GEORGE: In fact, yeah. Tamla-Motown artists are our favorites. The Miracles. JOHN: We like Marvin Gaye. GEORGE: The Impressions, Marvin Gaye. PAUL & GEORGE: Mary Wells. GEORGE: The Exciters. RINGO: Chuck Jackson. JOHN: To name but eighty.

Talk about a man with a complicated legacy.

RIP Phil Spector.

I love his work. I started delving into it more extensively a couple years ago.

Paul was wrong about Let it Be. Spector’s mix is the best. I also like what he did for George.

I think the first time I ever actually saw Phil Spector was when he played a drug dealer in the first scene of the movie Easy Rider. I knew who he was (songs like You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’ used to scare the hell out of eleven year old me) but he wasn’t a familiar character like in the 70s. I remember this scene as being really heavy in 1969, but it seems almost comical now. Maybe I’ve watched too many Tarantino movies.paul-mccartney

I just discovered that Tim Bogert, the bass player from Vanilla Fudge died about a week ago at the age of 76.  Tim was also a member of Cactus and Beck, Bogert & Appice.  I always thought Tim was a killer bass player.  Too underrated.

Although Vanilla Fudge’s biggest hit was their cover of You Keep Me Hanging On,  Beatle fans may also know their psychedelic covers of Ticket To Ride and Eleanor Rigby .  I think they also did You Can’t Do That .

Great aggressive bassist, underrated indeed (even if those Fudge/Cactus/BB&A records were ultimately pretty inessential). R.I.P. Tim.

Sad to hear of the death of baseball legend, and civil rights campaigner, Hank Aaron, at the age of 86.

Hank-Aaron.jpgImage Enlarger

Considered one of the giants of the sport, playing for the Atlanta Braves he was the black man who broke Babe Ruth’s record for home runs in 1974, earning him much hate mail and many death threats. He ended up with a career record of 755 home runs, a record that stood for 33 years, until broken by Barry Bonds in 2007. He still holds other records.

After his career he continued to work with the Atlanta Braves, and was also active on civil rights matters.

RIP Hank Louis Aaron (5 February 1934–22 January 2021).

Saddened to hear of the death of animator Ron Campbell on 22 January at the age of 81.

Ron-Campbell.jpgImage Enlarger

He worked on many classic animation series (including The SmurfsThe JetsonsThe FlintstonesScooby-Doo, and Rugrats) during his career, but will be remembered best for his work on The Beatles Cartoon (many of which he directed) and the roughly 12-minutes of Yellow Submarine  he animated (which included the Sea Of Time segment along with scenes featuring Jeremy Hillary Boob, PhD, and the Chief Blue Meanie and sidekick Max).

RIP Ron Campbell (26 December 1939–22 January 2021).

Remembering Sophie Xeon, better known as SOPHIE, groundbreaking producer of experimental electronic music and trans icon, who has died in an accident aged 34. Her impact on music is only just beginning, and she will be sorely missed.

Saddened to hear of the death on Friday of Hilton Valentine, lead guitarist with the 1963-1966 line-up of The Animals, at the age of 77.

Hilton-Valentine.jpgImage Enlarger

Valentine’s electric guitar arpeggio intro to House of the Risin’ Sun is rightly regarded as one of the great intros to one of the great recordings of the ’60s. Another of those one take wonders. And Valentine’s guitar playing would influence the first generation of folk-rock, and still echoes today…

Eric Burdon said:

The opening opus of Rising Sun will never sound the same!… You didn’t just play it, you lived it! Heartbroken by the sudden news of Hilton’s passing. We had great times together, Geordie lad. From the North Shields to the entire world…Rock In Peace

RIP Hilton Stewart Paterson Valentine (21 May 1943–29 January 2021)

Extremely sad to hear of the death from coronavirus today of Captain Sir Tom Moore at the age of 100.

Captain-Tom.jpgImage Enlarger

The signs were worrying when he was admitted to hospital yesterday.

A World War II veteran who fought in the Burma campaign, he made his mark on not just the UK but also much of the world by walking 100 lengths of his garden. It was such a simple act but it caught the imagination and he became a bright light in amongst the darkness of the first lockdown, raising £33 million for the NHS along the way.

He had a quite remarkable final ten months to top off a remarkable life.
