  • Norman, your blog is, alas, virtually a permanent obit column at present. So sad at hearing of all these losses. RIP to each and every one.

    • So sad to hear of her passing. Norm, I think it is important that you continue publishing news about the deaths of musicians. It is vital that those people who devoted their lives to music, at the very least, be recognized at the end of their life. Thank you Norm, for doing this.
