    RIP Al Jarreau  - I loved "We're In This Love Together" back in the day. I can't say that I was a great fan otherwise. However, Al Jarreau was clearly a gentleman and an accomplished vocalist. If the Grammy Awards mean anything, he is without question one of the greatest. He certainly deserves to be honored here. Rest in peace Mr. Jarreau, we're all in this love together man...

    Very sad news. Was a huge fan since discovering him in 1983. Vale.

    Always surrounded himself with the best session muso's. In this video none other than Joe Sample (RIP) and Steve Gadd.

    "Stop Making Sense" and "Heart Of Gold" are two of the best concert films of all time. The man that directed them died today. Rest in Peace Jonathan Demme. You have left quite a legacy in film. You always "kept the eye (...and the ear) interested!"

    R.I.P. Chris Cornell


    Wikipedia - "Chris Cornell (born Christopher John Boyle; July 20, 1964 – May 17, 2017[1]) was an American musician, singer and songwriter, best known as the lead vocalist, primary songwriter and rhythm guitarist for Seattle rock band Soundgarden and as lead vocalist and songwriter for the group Audioslave. He was also known for his numerous solo works and soundtrack contributions since 1991, and as founder and frontman for Temple of the Dog, the one-off tribute band dedicated to his late friend Andrew Wood.

    Cornell was known for his role as one of the architects of the 1990s grunge movement, for his extensive catalog as a songwriter and for his near four octave vocal range[4] as well as his powerful vocal belting technique. He released four solo studio albums, Euphoria Morning (1999), Carry On(2007), Scream (2009), Higher Truth (2015) and the live album Songbook (2011). Cornell received a Golden Globe Award nomination for his song "The Keeper" which appeared in the film Machine Gun Preacher and co-wrote and performed the theme song to the James Bond film Casino Royale (2006), "You Know My Name". He was voted "Rock's Greatest Singer" by readers of Guitar World,[5] ranked 4th in the list of "Heavy Metal's All-Time Top 100 Vocalists" by Hit Parader,[6] 9th in the list of "Best Lead Singers of All Time" by Rolling Stone,[7] and 12th in MTV's "22 Greatest Voices in Music".[8]"
