In Memory of….

Grave Stone

In Memory Of…

In the past few weeks we have been holding off on our normal weekly song posts and doing some “in memory” of some of rock and rolls more famous artists who have passed away lately. There have been a few of the more famous artists that have passed and have been memorized in other blogs that we read so in this post we will not be mentioning those artists. The writers of the blogs did outstanding jobs in there writings and there is not much more we could add to them. Today we would like to mention a few “music artists” that are famous and didn’t play rock music but their contributed to music as a whole has meant a lot to the music that we listen to today. And we would like to put a “shout out” to maybe a couple lesser known rock artists that didn’t get all the hoopla that the other artists got after they passed away. May you all R.I.P.

      • I was at Woodstock when Havens sang “Here Comes the Sun”. It was a big hit because we were all wet and wallowing in mud for much of the first day. The latrines had given out even before I got there and we not only paid to park our car, but had to pay again to have it towed from the mud into which it had sank. People in the neighborhood left their hoses on in their front yards for us to drink and some even made sandwiches and gave them out for free to passer-byers. Good times!
