I found out where and when, specifically, former Libra musician/singer/songwriter Federico D'Andrea died, and at what age.

       He was run over by a car and killed on November 28th, 1978 in Rome, at the age of 30.
             What a senseless loss that was to the progressive rock music world.

Not a musician, but - 
MICHAEL BELL, 64 

Record store owner knew his music 

Collector, seller believed in sound quality of LPs, 45s. 

By Michelle E. Shaw [email protected]   
   Michael Bell knew a lot about audio quality, but he wasn’t a sound engineer. He knew a lot about music, but he wasn’t necessarily a music lover. 
   “I know that sounds strange, but I would not classify him as a music lover. But he was a record collector and seller,” Chris Bell said of his brother. “He believed that the playing quality of the really good 45s and LPs could exceed that of CDs and a discerning collector would know that.” 
   Since 1981, Bell owned and operated Records Galore in Clarkston. He specialized in selling vintage records in mint condition, said Ken Waldrop, a friend and business partner . 
   “He’d been around so long, everybody in the record business knew him,” Waldrop said. “And he had an unbelievable memory. He knew his inventory .” 
   Michael Sutherland Bell of Stone Mountain died Friday of complications from cancer. He was 
   64. 
   A graveside service is planned for noon on Tuesday at the Georgia National Cemetery in Canton. Tim Stewart Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements. 
   Born in Alexandria, Va., but reared in Atlanta, Bell served for three years in the U.S. Army, including a year in Vietnam. Before he opened the record shop, he worked for PET Dairy as a milkman, his brother said. 
   “He was stockpiling records in his apartment,” Bell said of his brother. “He knew he wanted to open a store. But he wasn’t just a seller. He maintained his own private collection.” 
   Michael Bell enjoyed an easy listening sound, his brother said, while many of his customers enjoyed jazz, blues and R&B. 
   “He had a strong customer base overseas,” his brother said. “And many would come visit while they were in the country on record buying trips.” 
   Waldrop, whose music collection shares shop space with Bell’s, said the hunt for rare albums energized his business partner. “You never knew what he was going to bring through the door,” Waldrop said. “He was always fascinated at what you could find when you went looking.” 
   Chris Bell said his brother scoured all sorts of places including, flea markets, yard sales and estate sales. 
   “He had an instinct for finding a bargain,” Bell said of his brother. “It was all very exciting for him.” 
   Bell was able to continue working in his shop until early December. Waldrop said he and Bell were making plans to renovate their shared space when the illness struck. 
   “I’m still going to do it, still going to renovate,” Waldrop said. “And we’re going to keep the store going. That’s what Mike would have wanted.” 
   In addition to his brother, Bell is survived by his mother, Alice Bell of Lawrenceville; sisters, Lydia Vogtner of Sausalito, Calif., and Becky Greenway of Norcross. 


Michael Bell opened Records Galore in 1981. His health forced him to stop working in early December, but friends kept it going and hope to keep it open. 

I was trying to post a picture.  I'll have to do that in a round about way when I get home.  I paid my first visit to his shop before the age of CDs. Big smile

RIP Maestro Claudio Abbado. I had the enormous pleasure of seeing him conduct live and in his former house, the Philharmonie with the Berliner Philharmoniker. I have many many recording with him at the helm (his Brahms cycle is glorious as is his Boris Godunov). RIP
