I had the great fortune of seeing "David Bowie Is..." exhibit at the V&A in London last year. Today marks the opening of the exhibit here in Chicago at the Museum of Contemporary Art, its only North American stop. There are many events coinciding with the exhibit, including a few classic albums being performed live, including The Disappears performing Low on November 22nd. Don't miss any of it!
From the Jethro Tull website:
"It is with great sadness that we learned today of the passing of Glenn Cornick, bass player with Jethro Tull from the band’s inception 1968 until 1970. Of course, he had also played with the John Evan Band for the year during 1967 and so his contribution to the geographical transition from Blackpool to London and into the professional music scene was considerable.
Props to Steven Wilson on his 5.1 remix of Gentle Giant's 1974 classic, Power and The Glory. To my ears, it's the aural equivalent of being in the middle of the room or stage - completely enveloped in sound. And of course, hats off to GG, as this was about as good as good would get for the band, and the genre. A true element of style album, perfectly suited for surround sound.
Can I wish for [[releases/three-friends|Three Friends]] next?
