One of prog rock's greatest bands, Gentle Giant combined the talents of the brothers' Shulman with Kerry Minnear and Gary Green. Their work during the 70s is as exemplary as any of the progressive era. Clever, complicated, executed precisely, the band never forgot the most important tenent of rock-n-roll: the ability to rock out.

Giorgio Gomelsky, RIP

Giorgio Gomelsky, first manager of the Rolling Stones and the Yardbirds, and owner of the legendary Crawdaddy Club, died today in NYC after a battle with cancer. He was 82. The Georgian born Gomelsky was instrumental in the career of many progressive musicians, serving as the manager/impresario/sevengali to the Soft Machine, the Blossom Toes, Gong, Vangelis and Magma. RIP, Giorgio.

Glenn Cornick, RIP

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.
