RIP Phil May

Pretty Things' singer Phil May has died at age 75 from complications in surgery following a bike accident. Make no mistake: When you talk about The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, The Who and The Yardbirds, The Pretty Things need to be in that column. From early beat to freak beat to psychedelic to art rock, the Pretties were one of Britian's originals, and one of finest rock bands ever. I raise my glass to Phil, rest in peace and my sincere condolences to your loved ones. Long live the king!

RIP Florian Schneider

Florian Schneider of Kraftwerk passed away today after a short battle with cancer. There's no underestimating the importance of Kraftwerk's impact on modern music. They were pioneers, innovators, true originals, legends. I'll never forget hearing Autobahn on AM radio as a teenager in 1975. It was most American's introduction to music from Germany. For the band, it was a beginning, and over the next few years they would continue to create completely original music. David Bowie's V2-Schneider was in tribute to Florian.
