His life story was very sad. It's a shame he couldn't over come the demons of his depressing childhood.Just goes to show the old addage, money doesn't buy happiness. Thanks for posting this Spidey.I hope he is finally happy and he's at rest now.
Ah, not just me being late with a post yesterday because the Blogger editor wasn't firing up? I was able to get my Gerry Rafferty post up in good time though, and I'm glad I did. I learned something new from an obit I read today - the sax solo in Baker Street was originally supposed to be piano but the musician didn't turn up and the sax player happened to be at the studio at the time. I didn't know, though, that the cheque they paid him with bounced! And what a famous sound that went on to be...
That's a new one on me, too - I knew the solo wasn't originally supposed to be on sax but I had no idea that Raph Ravenscroft's cheque bounced! =-O Fucking musos, eh? :-D Typical! :-P
So many of the best ones over the years haven't been able to handle it, Bunni - you're right, money can't buy happiness and the music business has chewed a lot of people up and then spat them out. :(
