    Said in the other thread.

    "Homeboy, throw in the towel.
    Your girl got dicked by Ricky Powell."

    Always enjoyed his photography. And hearing his name always made me wonder who the dude was until the Internet made things more accessible.

    RIP Ricky Powell

    Crazy how screech only found out a month ago he was sick and BAM. Same thing happened to my dad. Went to the hospital with pain in the back, a week later he was gone. Fuck cancer.

    I saw him a few times live, and met him in a record shop and chatted about his obscure shit, like Delphi (three strings per key piano bith for the Scientologists) you know, to show him I was a real geek, because I thought that would make me somehow seem less insignificant.

    He was unerringly nice and more importantly, was an absolute mother on keys.  My favourite set is the Akoustic Band live at The Blue Note, Tokyo.  It's where Vinnie Colaiuta deps for Dave Weckl.  Vinnie is channelling the ghoast of Tony Williams and it's, uh... Electric.  You can find some of the set on YouTube.  Vinnie sneaking a cigarette at the kit.  

    There's also one with him and Hiromi and the late youth Austin Peralta knocking six shades out of "Someday My Prince Will Come" in Tokyo too.  If you know, you know.

    Rest in power.  Gutted.

    Paul Jackson of The Headhunters died last month

  • Damn, DMX... that sucks. He seemed to have turned a corner addiction wise and people are posting a lot of positive anecdotes about meeting him. Same day motherfuckers over here wall-to-wall covering 99-year old prince philip, who has looked like an unearthed reanimated corpse for like the past 25 years, nobody is surprised that guy croaked. Nobody even likes him! But nobody at work knew X!!! What the fuck!!

    I hope the afterlife isn’t as dark or hot as he predicted.

    Always cracks me up everyone talking about equality, undoing the patriarchy and dealing with the fact the US is basically a racist oligarchy but then many of these same people and news outlets are obsessed with the British Royalty and idolizing them. You know, the monarchy that murdered and enslaved millions while stealing and plundering their lands and property many of which the monarchy still posses and refuse to return to the rightfully owners/descendants. Most museums is stolen shit people especially in England. And they stay rich and powerful (and friends of scum like Epstein) when they should have been stripped of it all a long time ago. No wonder this planet is a disaster. It's like the US forgot we fought a war with them to gain our independence which we've since totally flushed down the toilet.

    I don't know how I hadn't heard that before.  Styles goes off too... and Jada sounds so young.
