  • Too Many RIPs!

    Listen to this musical montage from today's Morning Edition.



    How many do you recognize? And how many have you listened to in the past? Me, I lost count.



    And too late for this piece, we just lost Mike Auldridge, most famously from The Seldom Scene, who brought a new style of playing the Dobro (OK, so in later years he played a "resophonic guitar") to bluegrass music and spawned a generation of modern players.

    In my line of work, I average about 4 funerals a week so it doesn`t throw me at all.



    People die everyday, all ages, all walks of life from all different types of incidents: accidents, natural death, suicides, overdoses, illness, and on and on it goes...



    Gives me a different perspective than most I think... there is no guarantee for tomorrow and everyday is a gift. All those cliches are true.

      RIP, Mr Auldridge.





      I heard that NPR montage. I turned on the radio just before so I didn't know what it was... it took about 3 seconds to figure out. Many great artists passed this year... like so many before.



      We all fall like the petals from a lotus, ever unfolding.





      Unless we really mess it up and kill the whole damn plant...

        Missing Ronnie Montrose, Eddie Bertrand, Bob Welch, Ed Cassidy, and Lee Dorman.
        Here's a tip - if you put out some horrible lo-fi recording that sounds like a Gorilla banging an antelope while using a vacuum with a bad belt drive to suck up a floor full of marbles and silverware - and folks don't line up in mass numbers to hop on your wagon... maybe it ain't us who don't "get it". - THX1138

          Yeah, in 2012 we lost too many. Some were icons, some I bumped up against over the years and 3 were personal friends & collaborators: Lee Dorman, Larry "Rhino" Reinhardt and Benjy King. I feel a bit diminished...
