Hal Blaine, Wrecking Crew Drummer and Rock Hall of Fame Member, Dies at 90

Hal Blaine was first to have a drum kit consist of rows of toms - e.g. before Neil Peart or Alex Van Halen.

Richard Anthony Monsour (a.k.a. Dick Dale) (May 4, 1937 – March 16, 2019)

Dick Dale, King of Surf Guitar, ‘Miserlou’ composer, is dead

Very sad to hear this. He was one of my top ten favorite electric guitarists and a big influence on me as an amateur guitar player.
I got to see him seven times over the years and he always put on a great show and seemed to have a genuine love for his fans. He would stick around after every show and chat with fans, pose for pictures, and sign autographs for everybody that wanted one and not leave until everyone that wanted to speak with him had gotten their turn.

I last saw him play a show in 2017 at The Middle East Downstairs in Cambridge, MA. I had always wanted to record some video of Dick and his band and got the chance that night.
Here is the YouTube playlist for the videos for anyone interested...

Dick Dale @ The Middle East, August 18, 2017

R.I.P.

RIP. Got close to seeing him but never was able to. He tore it up.

Two case studies in how to reinvent yourself the right way.

When you turn 50, your interest in obits acquires a sharper focus: How old was this guy? What did he die of? With that pretext, I'd like to comment on recent casualties in this thread:

Hal Blaine: died at 90 of natural causes which makes him, if not the most memorable musician, a winner in some sense.
Dick Dale: died at 81 of heart and kidney failure. Thanks for the live link Psy-Fi. I watched some of his performance, but what I found most interesting was that you recorded it yourself! TBH I think I prefer his classic studio recordings.
Scott Walker: died at 76 of cancer. He was a total heart-throb for girls in the sixties, but it was only from MB that I learned he had reinvented himself. AFAIK that transition didn't make any impact in England, though one Brit newspaper reported that it was "like Andy Williams reinventing himself as Stockhausen."
Mark Hollis:died at 64 "after a short illness from which he never recovered." I'd never listened to Talk Talk until rostasi posted Spirit of Eden, which really impressed me as an album. He lived in the same London suburb that I lived in for 3 years. It's now one of the most expensive parts of London and proudly calls itself a village:
