I think we should have one RIP thread for musicians. Sometimes we create one for some artist who died and only one or two people visit it. Let's have one place where we pay respects to musicians whose lives might have affected only some of us.

For me, today one ofthe greatest living conductors passed away. RIP Sir Colin Davis. Much of your music making has made me much richer.

I created a similar thread to this called Gone But Not Forgotten, but was mainly for prog musicians.

I am so sorry to hear of Sir Colin Davis's passing, I admired him.

As some may know, my favorite musician, Helmut Koellen, died over 35 years ago, on May 3rd, 1977. I think of him everyday with fondness!

Saw MANZAREK - KRIEGER OF THE DOORS live twice, the last time a year ago.  Ray radiated energy, I thought he will live at least to 90. I hoped to see them once again. Not in this world unfortunately.

RIP, Ray and say hello to Jim.

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

I just heard that jazz guitar great Jim Hall passed away last December.  The guy reinvented the use of guitar in jazz music....a true pioneer, but also a fantastic composer.  Pick up any Jim Hall album, and there are literally dozens, and you'll be convinced - Jim Hall was the man.

Before I started doing political newsfeeds on facebook this was my go to for liberal political humor and news (0ne of the few sane people in Oklanoma)  -

"We are deeply saddened to report the passing of Bart on the morning of March 5, 2014. He died peacefully due to his flu, pneumonia and his Leukemia. His last word is below as well as opportunities to communicate what he and his Tequila Tree House have meant to you over the years.

As we grieve the loss and celebrate Bart's life we will consider our options for the future of the page in the days ahead. Send us your thoughts.

Donations to help Mrs. Bart cover Bart's medical expenses are greatly appreciated.

I certainly loved him.  Although he was down on his own playing.  He felt he may not be up to the standards of the band.  Hard to believe given his skills!

^ He was a perfectionist and had a style so great he probably couldn't see it.   Which is amusing since he and Jones held the band together musically.   Without his solid foundation it wouldn't have worked.

Oh Bonzo, you are missed.   Everyone imitates you and some don't even know it's you they're imitating.
