JEFF BECK R.I.P.
DAVID CROSBY R.I.P.
This is getting old. Literally.
Guess I’m going to have to keep this blog from becoming an obituary column…
Jeff Beck, one of the greatest guitarists ever, of The Yardbirds, etc., passed away last week from a case of acute bacterial meningitis. He was otherwise in great shape at 78.
David Crosby of the Byrds and CSNY fame passed away today after a long illness at the age of 81.
Beck was often ranked one of the top five greatest guitarists. See his albums Truth and Blow by Blow for proof of his artistry on the Stratocaster.
Crosby was a gifted singer songwriter who’s duets with Graham Nash of the stuff of legend. See the albums CSN and Deja Vu for more. The right vinyl copy is best, of course.
