Legendary rock band Golden Earring stops after 60 years on ALS diagnosis | NL Times

You couldn't have lived through the 70s or 80s without loving their hits, but there's a lot more to the band, including some fantastic albums in the 60s and 70s. Take care dear George Kooymans.

Gordon Haskell, RIP

Gordon Haskell, perhaps best known in Prog circles as the vocalist on King Crimson's Lizard album, passed away on October 18th. His second solo album, 1971's It Is and It Isn't, opened a career that would offer him little reward until his substantial hit "How Wonderful You Are" in 2001. RIP, my condolences to his friends and family.
