    While I didn't know of Hal Willner until his death, I was blown away by this amazing tribute by Tom Waits and Kathleen Brennan.

    Also enjoyed all your comments on John Prine and loved the live version post of Lake Marie, Thank you. I have been listening to live September 78 a lot since his death and of course his latest Tree of Forgiveness. One of the finest songwriters and a gentle soul. I hope he's smoking that 9 mile long cigarette.

    Prominent jazz saxophonist Lee Konitz died in NYC on April 15, 2020, as a result of pneumonia brought on by COVID-19. He was one of the early disciples of the "cool" school of jazz and was on Miles Davis' famous album "The Birth of the Cool". I was fortunate to have seen him several times and once spoke w him briefly. He was 92. Thanx for all the great music and RIP.

    Steve Dalkowski, the minor league pitcher that Nuke LaLoosh of the movie "Bull Durham" was based on, died of CV-19 in New Britain, Connecticut on April 19 at the age of 80. He was in the Orioles' system for most of his career. He was regarded by many as the hardest-throwing pitcher that ever lived and was estimated to have thrown at least as fast as 110 mph. He struck out a ton of batters but also was very wild and walked a ton also. In ST in 1963, he was going to be called up to MLB but never actually was because of an injury. He had an acute drinking problem and spent his last 26 yrs in an assisted living facility. I actually thought he had died a long time ago. His story is both amazing and amusing and FanGraphs has a story on his life and career today: https://blogs.fangraphs.com/remember...-pitcher-ever/

    Sweet Pea Atkinson, lead singer of Was (Not Was), died at age 74. Although they're best known for 1988ís "Walk the Dinosaur" and largely considered a one-hit wonder, I think their version of Otis Redding's "I Can't Turn You Loose" is their best recording:

    Florian Schneider, one of the founders of Kraftwerk, passed away from cancer. While I wasn't a huge fan, they're influence on musicians and groups in age/style from Bowie to Joy Division is amazing.
