...the last King of the Blues. Sad, sad news this morning that B.B. King has passed away aged 89 the last of the three Kings of the Blues.
...a one off. There was no one quite like the gas fitter from Sheffield who has died aged 70.
...near the station. R.I.P. Jack Bruce, one of the finest bass players of his and any generation.
...whites? R.I.P. Johnny Winter, the whitest of white guys to play the blues, who has died aged 70.
...gone. R.I.P. Thomas Erdelyi aka Tommy Ramone the last surviving original member of The Ramones.
...“The Far East”. Bill Ruppert’s latest Effectology video shows him head over to Japan for some koto, flute and taiko drum.
...another Stooge gone. Amazing to think of the first incarnation of The Stooges, after the death a couple of days ago of drummer Scott Asheton, only Iggy Pop of the quartet is still alive.
...playlist. After recent revelations about the marriage of these two jailbirds here's a couple of tracks that fit.
...groove. The reverend Billy F. Gibbons joins John Fogerty on stage for one ZZ Top classic and one Creedence Clearwater Revival classic...
...down. Don't know if it's just Bill Ruppert that makes these Electro-Harmonix pedals sound so good and make them so “wantable”, the Slammi pitch shifter is bringing out the GAS.
...the Lion of the Blues. Another of the blues greats has gone to the great gig in the sky
...“On The Run”. Bill Ruppert's latest Effectology video shows him recreating Pink Floyd's “On The Run” instrumental from their 1973 classic “Dark Side Of The Moon” album.
...and defeat all evil. 4 minutes 49 seconds and David Lee Roth speaks a whole 14 words. Gotta be some sort of record.
...this is the end. The Doors keyboardist past away at age 74.
...calling all comas.
