RIP Keith Levene (1957 – 2022)

“Death Disco” (1979)

Keith Levene was een Engels gitarist die ik ooit door wat gericht gegoogel op het spoor kwam.

Hij maakte deel uit van The Clash en van Public Image Ltd, Johnny Rottens project na de Sex Pistols.

Hierboven hoort u hem op “Death Disco” (1978). U kan hem ook zien want hoe gek het ook klinkt, ze kwamen ermee op Top of the Pops.

RIP Keith Levene

RIP John Goodsall (1953 – 2021)

John Goodsall was an American-British rock guitarist known for his work with Atomic Rooster and Brand X.

Unorthodox Behaviour (1976)

Goodsall worked in the jazz fusion and prog rock idioms, genres which can be quite boring, except when compiled on such albums as Prog Is Not a Four Letter Word (2005) by Andy Votel.

RIP Ellen McIlwaine (1945 – 2021)

Ellen McIlwaine was an American singer-songwriter and musician best known for her career as a solo singer, songwriter and slide guitarist.

“Jimmy Jean”

I discovered her via Life:Styles – Kenny Dope (2003) which features her “Jimmy Jean” song, originally released on the album We The People (1973). The congas you hear are, as far as I know, by Cándido Camero.

Her song “Can’t Find My Way Home” is reminiscent of “You Goin’ Miss Your Candyman” (1968) is a song by Terry Callier.
