I'm sorry to hear this. I loved his playing, and by all accounts he was a really nice guy.

Ray M from the Doors

RIP Ray, the leading force behind the Doors who played keyboards as well as recruited Jim Morrison into the band. He dies of cancer surrounded by his family in Germany.

Thanks Ray for the transcendence of The Doors - Music far ahead of it's time.

Ray Harryhausen

Passed today, he was 92. I know I loved all of his special "stop motion" effects and his films live on with me to this day. The best of the best, the only one to do what he did at the time, a true visionary.

R.I.P. Storm Thorgerson

Bidding a belated farewell to the visionary artist responsible for all the Pink Floyd album covers. He passed away April 18th, 2013. Hopefully he's somewhere up there with Syd, telling stories and laughing about the good ol' days.

R I P Barry Fey

Promoter Barry Fey has passed away. He put Colorado on the map for bringing in many performers, most notably at the beautiful Red Rocks amphitheater. Anyone have an old ticket stub with Fey or Feyline on it? Did he put on the fabulous show at Folsom field in Boulder on 9/3/72?

Alvin Lee

Just heard Alvin Lee passed yesterday, routine medical procedure gone bad, he was 68. Loved this guys guitar style, saw Ten Years After many times, good times. RIP sir, another one for the heart of gold band.
Also just heard that Ed Cassidy, drummer extrodinaire, passed Dec 6th last year, Father Spirit left us with some great music and he was a real sweet guy, massive arms and the upper body strength of a weightlifter, when he shook my hand, you could feel every muscle moving, that's what 75 years of drumming will do to you. He was 89 and played right up to his death. Randy and him are together again in the spirit in the sky band. RIP my brothers

It's 1/19/2013, a birthday for remembering!

Remembering the greatness and
the fantastic-ness of Bear!

In Memory of him and
In Honor of those he left behind
for the threshold of transition into
the best "trip" ever. I attempt to
not envy but much to my dismay
I fail and await my "trip".

We all get direction just not all in the
same direction. Bear's was awesome
and undeniably unique and just being
able to sher in that...delightful.

He has been such an inspiration to me.
I am indebted but free. My taste so
comparable to his. My eyes and ears
and my world basked in it all.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BEAR's like I told you...

Great Idea

Thank you for a forum like this. I know am not alone on how much we miss our loved ones who have departed to early. I have 32 friends lost to our way of living back in the day. Wether car accident or touring in generagl. way to many passed on to early to young. But they will bve waiting for us when we all get home.I know and trust that in my heart of hearts.
To name a few would not be fair to all those others so I wont go there.
I have to name my Dear Gina who I miss everyday. Life can be so unfair it seems.
