Recommended Posts

Various reports coming in that original Comets drummer and occasional back-up singer Dick Richards has died aged 95:

 

Surprisingly did most of the stage work and drums on the early recordings seem to have been done by session musos.

That's either horrific or ironic - depending on the how well they kept time whilst beating him to death

Who?  Of the What?

Derek Trucks is a blues rock guitarist. He is the nephew of Butch Allman, was in The Allman Bros from 1999 on, and is married to blues rock musician Susan Tedeschi. 

He always had a rotating cast of musicians on his albums and live performances, so I can't assure you I totally know who Scott is, but deserves to be here nonetheless (just because you haven't heard of em, doesnt mean I or Phantom haven't heard of them-rule, fyi :D )

Ah fuck, I was wondering why he wasn't on the tour lineup when I saw them in August.

Based on this picture alone I won't even bother putting him on my DDP longlist.
