Not very well known in SA but the American Jazz singer Al Jarreau passed away yesterday aged 76. He won several Grammys and sang the theme some to Moonlighting and also performed on We Are The World. I quite enjoyed his 1983 song Mornin'.

Well I haven't heard too many tributes thus far.. (Perhaps DSTV has a surprise feature on the icon??)
But to be fair this was a long time ago in the 1950's. I wasn't even a teenager then and not living in the US so I revived R&R with one of the revivals.
But here's what The Economist has to say:

Default Goodbye Bruce -- Mr Tambourine Man!

Here is the obituary of Bruce Langhorne, the man who blew off half of his hand making a home-made rocket as a boy; yet went on to be an accomplished guitarist and pianist.
He inspired Bob Dylan to write Mr Tambourine Man!

Well worth a read whether you are a fan of his work, or not.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/obituarie...-man-obituary/

(EDIT: Sorry, the full article is only available if you are a Telegraph subscriber. But both his life history and obituary are readily available if you google his name. Fascinating character! and highly influential.

Cheers, K.

Chris Cornell (singer of Soundgarden and Audioslave as well as a solo artist) has passed away at the age of 52. While I can't ever claim to have been that big a fan, he did contribute to the musical backdrop of my teens.

He was very talented and a true legend in my eyes - will be sorely missed!

Just seen that Roger Moore has also passed away from cancer at the age of 89.
