R.I.P. Peter Green (Fleetwood Mac)

Green, to some listeners, was the best of the British blues guitarists of the 1960s. B.B. King once said Green “has the sweetest tone I ever heard. He was the only one who gave me the cold sweats.”

He's not a musician but I just read about the passing of abc's weatherman Jerry Taft :( . It said he retired in 2018. I could've sworn I saw him on the air recently. RIP.

R.I.P. Frankie Banali

Quiet Riot much quieter today without Frankie beating the skins. #2 gone. (#3 if you count original guitarist Randy Rhoads). I saw them in concert in 1983 touring for their breakthrough album Metal Health.

R.I.P. Lee Kerslake

Drummer for Uriah Heep and for Ozzy Osbourne for his first two albums. For some weird reason, Ozzy wanted to erase this guy and another from those two albums. Even years later, Ozzy went back and rerecorded and re-released the entire albums using new tracks from a new drummer and bass player to rewrite history of who actually played those parts on them. Poor Lee lost his home and went bankrupt due to the years of lawsuits against Sharon and the Prince of Darkness. He finally got his dying wish of a couple of platinum album awards to put on his wall acknowledging his work on those two albums he got erased from. Only thing is by then he didn't even have a wall to put them on because, remember, he lost his home suing the Osbournes to get those platinum albums. So sad...

Why is everything so weird with Ozzy?. Nothing is as weird as the day his tour bus driver decides to take an airplane without permission to dive bomb the bus to try to wake Ozzy up. He talks guitarist Randy Rhoads to go with him. "C'mon, it'll be fun!!" He wakes Ozzy up alright when he clips the bus on one of his passes. The wounded plane then veers off out of control and hits and destroys the mansion of the plane's owner. They both die instantly and Ozzy survives another day to continue his goofy life.

I was never much of an Ozzy fan and I never heard of Lee Kerslake. But I do like learning new things (i.e., I favor documentaries or films based on true events over fictional movies, for instance). Your description of Lee Kerslake sounds incredibly interesting. So I'll look him up and read more about his life and times. Thanks.

Apologies to Ozzy fans but the guy is a complete waste of space. Too bad about Kerslake.

R.I.P. Helen Reddy

I actually liked Helen Reddy, but then again, I was like 10 or 11 years old and didn't know any better. I still like her voice though.

I didn't know she was Australian until tonight. Passport now lists her citizenship as the the Netherlands.

R.I.P. Mac Davis

I liked him too when I was a kid, but that's because I thought he was the dad from the Brady Bunch. He wrote himself a slew of hits and even penned some for Elvis. He did some acting too. Just like Ms. Reddy, he was 78.

R.I.P. Eddie Van Halen

I can't hardly type this one... When the first album broke, rock changed. No one had ever heard playing like this. Me and my high school friends would argue if the song Eruption was really a synth and not a guitar because "no one could play a guitar so fast." It was real and it was his revolutionary new style of finger tapping with hammer ons and pull offs. They played the same clubs as Randy Rhoads and there was some controversy, even to this day, who invented the technique.

I had a hot young date once and I was showing her my keyboard setup. She asked, "Can you play Jump?" I immediately did and she was so impressed she married me. Unlike rock stars, we remain happily married to this day.

My kids and I are so happy we got to see Van Halen live (w/David Lee Roth back) the last time they played Chicago, about 5 years ago. Down the tube goes all this talk of a reunion of all four originals... :( :|

Go listen to the guitar solo in Hot for Teacher if you need to be reminded of his genius. The licks, the speed, with all the quick stops and starts the timing and phrasing is unbelievable, and unlike the slop Jimmy Page would lay down as a solo, there is a beginning, middle and end.

EVH has been on my mind a lot lately as there recently are a slew of guys requesting me to make replacement wood for their Oberheim OB-XAs (the keyboard in the Jump video). Here's one I just did for a man in California.

Van Halen played at the Hooker Lake Inn in the late 70s while touring for their 1st album. I went to Antioch High, it was a little before my time but there were some great stories going around.

A few years ago I posted a video of my son hitting balls off a tee to a The Outfield tune on social media. Got a "Like" from Tony lewis which I thought was hilarious at the time.
