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.
