RIP to the King of Rock and Roll’s only child, Lisa Marie Presley. Everyone always though I was named after her, but my mom always proudly told them that she was named after me. I always felt as if she was my sister in a way. My condolences to Priscilla and the family of this great lady.

Once again, I open up Wikipedia, see the recent deaths and say out loud “Oh, I didn’t know she died. 🙁 “

Saddened by the breaking news that David Crosby has died at the age of 81. His wife broke the news with a statement to US publication Variety:

It is with great sadness after a long illness, that our beloved David (Croz) Crosby has passed away. He was lovingly surrounded by his wife and soulmate Jan and son Django. Although he is no longer here with us, his humanity and kind soul will continue to guide and inspire us. His legacy will continue to live on through his legendary music. Peace, love, and harmony to all who knew David and those he touched. We will miss him dearly. At this time, we respectfully and kindly ask for privacy as we grieve and try to deal with our profound loss. Thank you for the love and prayers.

Co-founder of The Byrds (one of the few American bands to offer real competition to The Beatles at their height), along with Crosby, Stills, and Nash (and sometimes Young), he was one of the most influential musicians who emerged in the second half of the last century, playing a huge part in the creation of folk-rock and country-rock. While The Beatles may have got Dylan thinking about electric guitars, The Byrds sealed the deal with their cover of Mr. Tambourine Man.

To co-found one of the great ’60s bands is notable, two of them and you’re getting greedy.

This from 1990 seems like an apt clip, a reunited Byrds performing Turn! Turn! Turn! at a tribute concert for Roy Orbison, and then being joined by Dylan for Mr. Tambourine Man

For everything there is a season. Another giant of the ’60s has fallen.

Stephen Stills, Graham Nash and Neil Young made heartwarming statements with respect to David Crosby.

Stephen Stills:

I read a quote in this morning’s paper attributed to composer Gustav Mahler that stopped me for a moment:
“Death has, on placid cat’s paws, entered the room.”
I shoulda known something was up.

David and I butted heads a lot over time, but they were mostly glancing blows, yet still left us numb skulls.
I was happy to be at peace with him.

He was without question a giant of a musician, and his harmonic sensibilities were nothing short of genius.
The glue that held us together as our vocals soared, like Icarus, towards the sun.
I am deeply saddened at his passing and shall miss him beyond measure.

Graham Nash:

It is with a deep and profound sadness that I learned that my friend David Crosby has passed. I know people tend to focus on how volatile our relationship has been at times, but what has always mattered to David and me more than anything was the pure joy of the music we created together, the sound we discovered with one another, and the deep friendship we shared over all these many long years. David was fearless in life and in music. He leaves behind a tremendous void as far as sheer personality and talent in this world. He spoke his mind, his heart, and his passion through his beautiful music and leaves an incredible legacy. These are the things that matter most. My heart is truly with his wife, Jan, his son, Django, and all of the people he has touched in this world.

Neil Young:

David is gone, but his music lives on. The soul of CSNY, David’s voice and energy were at the heart of our band. His great songs stood for what we believed in and it was always fun and exciting when we got to play together. ‘Almost Cut My Hair’ ‘Dejavu’, and so many other great songs he wrote were wonderful to jam on and Stills and I had a blast as he kept us going on and on. His singing with Graham was so memorable, their duo spot a highlight of so many of our shows.

We had so many great times, especially in the early years. Crosby was a very supportive friend in my early life, as we bit off big pieces of our experience together. David was the catalyst of many things.

My heart goes out to Jan and Django, his wife and son. Lots of love to you. Thanks David for your spirit and songs, Love you man. I remember the best times!

Byrds’ bassist Chris Hillman has said:

I lost my friend, David, today. Whose beautiful voice softened life’s blows, and brought so much joy to us all.

He was my mentor, my big brother, my friend. The many miles we traveled together will always hold a special place in my heart.

Singing with David was a blessing beyond words.

I pray God grants him peace, and peace to his wife Jan, and his song Django.

And the spirit returns to God who gave it’

Man, this one sucks. What an inimitable golden voice we lost.

Crosby and Nash guested on a couple of David Gilmour’s solo albums, On An Island, one of my favorite records, and again on Rattle That Lock (I’ll post the songs below). The three of them had harmonies beautiful enough to approach Crosby, Stills, & Nash glory. I always held out a slim hope that they would collaborate again – my pie-in-the-sky fantasy was a whole Crosby, Gilmour, and Nash album, but I’d have taken just another song too. ahdn_george_06 Anyway, that’s no longer in the books. What a loss indeed. a-hard-days-night-paul-7a-hard-days-night-paul-10

On track B4 of James Taylor’s 1976 album In The Pocket, “Nothing Like a Hundred Miles”, James uses the vocal stylings of David Crosby and Graham Nash perfectly. They fit the song perfectly in the portions they sing along with James. as well as pleasingly CSNY-ish “ahhhhh”s at key points.

The vinyl album cover opens up and there’s a wide panned photograph of all of James Taylor’s accompanying musicians. What’s funny is if you look closely, and I couldn’t find a good large photograph of this, in the upper right Graham Nash and David Crosby are crowded in next to Carly Simon, and even though James Taylor is already in the photograph way over on the left, they photoshopped his face up there where Carly Simon is, as though he’s saying “hold on Graham and David, don’t get any ideas about Carly!”

“Nothing Like A Hundred Miles”
  

Thanks for this @seabelt, sounds great. I’ve owned this album for 45 years and don’t remember this song or most of the rest except for Shower. (I think it got overshadowed by the first Heartbreakers LP, which was probably purchased at the same time). I’m gonna dig it out and give it a good listen on the big speakers. a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

@sigh butterfly 

It’s close to my favorite JT album.  It probably has per capita of all his albums the most JT songs I like that would typically turn off non-fans.  Don’t Be Sad ‘Cause Your Sun Is Down is a very low-key song with perfect harmonica accompaniment (and harmonizing vocals w/ JT) by Stevie Wonder.  No fanfare, nobody said “hey look! James Taylor and Stevie Wonder together!”  They just did this quiet folk pop tune over in a corner, it probably hardly got any radio time, yet to me it’s superb.

I found the photographer’s email (he’s still alive at 83) and asked him about it, his secretary responded and said he would answer me, so I’m waiting, might take a couple of days.

Damn! This is proving a crap start to the year! Jeff Beck, Dave Crosby, and now the news that Tom Verlaine has left us at the age of 73.

The news was broken by Jesse Paris Smith, Patti’s daughter, on Instagram:

RIP-Tom-1.jpgImage Enlarger

Along with a picture of him with her when she was a child:

RIP-Tom-2.jpgImage Enlarger

Tom was one of the pivotal guitarists of the late ’70s when fronting Television, with 1977’s Marquee Moon regarded as one of the greatest — if not the greatest — US punk album of the era, and its nearly 11 minute title track is a masterclass:

He started back with Patti Smith, who he was romantically involved with, and played on her debut single, her version of Hey Joe, and Break It Up on her debut album Horses. They would collaborate occasionally over the years, and there was always something special about the two together.

Though not a massive name, a bit of a cult figure, he was one of the most influential guitarists of his generation, and much that was heard in the UK and US Indie scenes in the 1980s and beyond owed a debt to Verlaine.

Tom-Verlaine.jpgImage Enlarger

His is another sad loss in this month of sad losses. Calm down 2023, for feck’s sake!

I’ll admit I never heard of him or Television.  One thing I like to do with a man or band I don’t know who’s from the 70s or 80s is first see what they did later (if they did continue). I found their 1992 album also titled “Television” and listened to two tunes now — Mars and The Rocket.  I like them very much, and I notice he and/or they have a sense of humor, possibly deficient in most other punk bands.

And so, January continues to feck us, with the news that Barrett Strong left us on the 29th aged 81, very nearly 82.

Barrett-Strong.jpgImage Enlarger

A cornerstone of Motown, with his Money (That’s What I Want) being the label’s first hit. A certain four lads we know picked up on that one. He also co-write some of Motown’s biggest hits, including I Heard It Through the GrapevineWar, and Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?…..eVx1C73o8k

Though he wasn’t among the label’s biggest artists as a performer, as a songwriter with Norman Whitfield and others, the golden age of Motown wouldn’t have been nearly so golden if you take him out of the equation.

Motown was one of the pivotal labels in the 1960s, influencing The Beatles among others, and Strong was a big reason for that success. Motown would have been a very different label without him and Smokey Robinson.

Feck! Feck! Feck! This is a tough year so far.

Marty Scott, a member of the group Liverpool Legends who were managed by Louise Harrison, George’s sister, has announced on her Facebook page that she passed away yesterday aged 91.

Marty-Scott-and-Louise-Harrison.jpgImage Enlarger

Louise Harrison passed away yesterday… It’s really hard for me to get words out at the moment, but Lou meant the world to me… Since the day I met her my life was changed forever… It was just a few weeks after George passed and it started a whirlwind of change in my entire world. She’s been my family now for over 20 years. It’s hard to explain our relationship but at times she was truly my sister, sometimes my grandmother, sometimes my child, and sometimes my best friend. We spent so much time together and traveled to so many places. She was a huge part of my life and did so many things for me and Liverpool Legends. She opened so many darn doors for us and never took no for an answer. She was a pistol. She literally packed up and moved to Branson, Missouri for me. There are so many great memories and they will always keep me smiling every time I think of her. Louise had the biggest heart. She’d give the shirt off her back if you needed one. She made so many people happy in her very unique life. Her story really deserves to be told someday… She made it to an amazing 91 years old… I saw her a few weeks ago and when we said goodbye I really felt she was saying goodbye for the last time. Lou was completely ready to be off this planet and on to a better place. She passed yesterday painlessly and peacefully.
I love you Louise. All of us love you. Rest in Peace and your memory will always live on with all of us… ??
George’s first trip to the US was in 1963 with his brother to visit her. She promoted The Beatles a lot in the US in their early days, regularly sending reports to Brian about how things were going. When George was ill during the group’s first visit in February 1964, Louise flew in to look after him.
 
Her relationship with George in later years became a little awkward as he felt she traded too much on her relationship with a Beatle, and her relationship with Olivia deteriorated further after George’s death when she said in several interviews that George’s Estate should have been more generous in its financial support of her.
