    [quote author=purplepat link=topic=39925.msg718287#msg718287 date=1202245531] Anyway, count me as the token "progressive rock fan" on this board.

    Most people have never heard of Spock's Beard, but they are very good.
    May I recommend you check out Porcupine Tree.
    An outstanding prog rock band, and their drummer, Gavin Harrison was recently selected as the Modern Drummer magazine top prog rock drummer.

    Bump...


    We lost 2 top notch artists last week, both relatively young. Many of you young guys won't know them, but I thought they deserved an honorable mention in this post.


    Buddy Miles, 60 yrs old - drummer, who among other things played with Hendrix's Band of Gypsies.

    Mike Smith, 64 yrs old - keyboard player and singer for the Dave Clark Five...really the driving force artistically for this band.

    They say deaths happen in 3's. No sooner did I post the above, when I heard that Jeff Healey died at 41. Really was a very good guitarist, blind from the age of one. He played the guitar holding it on his lap. You might remember him from the movie "Road House" with Patrick Swayze and Sam Elliott.

    Really bummed about Buddy Miles. I have a pretty extensive Vinyl collection, and his is one of my favorite album covers...

    Terrible news. I was just lamely attempting to play his cover version of 'Tore Down' yesterday. Jeff Healey was one of my favorite guitarists. He had been playing a lot of horn and jazz in recent years from what I hear. Great musician from Canada,I will definately miss him.

    Buddy Miles was a great drummer.

    And I'm showing my age but, I actually saw the Dave Clark Five live when I was a kid.

    Deeply sadeened by the passing of Jeff Healy today. He had been fighting cancer all his life. His love of jazz and blues combined with the unique way he played were inspirations to all. The last couple years he was imersed in jazz, but on April 22nd he returns to blues and rock with a new album. Rock on brother, "as another blues stringer comes home."
