Danny Kustow, guitarist for Tom Robinson Band, is currently being treated for double pneumonia and a liver infection.

Kustow Dead. https://louderthanwar.com/danny-kustow-tom-robinson-band-guitarist-died/

 

Played on Robinson's 1983 hit War Baby, but not technically a miss for my team as he counts as a session muso for that number for my purposes.

Just heard the news from Richard Holgarth, guitarist for Eddie & The Hot Rods.

Tommy Tripplehorn, a Tulsa-born, LA-based studio musician and the father of actress Jeanne Tripplehorn, has died.  He was 75.  Tripplehorn was part of the 'Wrecking Crew' group of studio musicians and the second one to die this week, following the death of Hal Blaine.

Yes, I noticed that.  Don't know if that means he a multi-instrumentalist or if the obit just omitted the one he actually plays.

A fucking nobody is a fucking nobody, doesn't matter what instrument he plays. And only fucking nobodies who can't even afford a Wiki page are dying this month.

 

More seriously I think I'm addicted to death like Berlusconi is addicted to sex and cocaine. I'm enduring tremendous withdrawal symptoms.

Ok, dad, I'm going to sleep. But by tomorrow morning you'd better have killed someone or the usual candy won't be enough to keep me quiet.

He was a member of the Wrecking Crew, that isn’t a nobody.  In fact the Reaper is so interested in them he took twa inside of a week! Do not question the Reaper’s M.O.

The periodic table has a big birthday atm so he'll doubtless ship a fair few dollars in royalties,

 

He's not going anywhere soon.

Andre Williams has died at the age of 82.

What with Dick Dale dying on Saturday, this week is really biting.

Aye, every cloud and that - it's making the compilation of the list of the lost radio show for 2019 quite easy. Dick Dale back to back with Ken Nordine will make an amazing little listen

As mentioned in an earlier post Andre Williams has passed away at the age of 82. 

I had the pleasure of meeting him a few years ago at a gig he performed in Minneapolis.

Didn't get a photo with him, but he did autograph a copy of "Hoods and Shades" for me

Self-centred attention sponge of middling talent at best with a record of destoying any organisation he joins largely through his own narcissism. So - if you're depressed he joined the Tories, don't be!

 

Remind me - how many of his hits had lyrics about the plight of needy Aveley residents?

I suppose we should always be suspicious of a man who released a song called Mirror Mirror
