Michael Burks: July 30, 1957 to May 6, 2012

Post  Seamaster on Mon May 07, 2012 1:07 pm

In honour of one passionate player:



He died yesterday, after collapsing at the airport from a heart attack. He was returning from a tour of Europe.

One more (might be a bit soft for some of you):

I am on a slower connection right now, but I will give a listen later.

I had a chance to listen to them and they were very nice. Looks like the heart attack was a bit inevitable, though!


That reminds me -- I found a bunch of videos on youtube of John Lee Hooker and Ry Cooder performing together back in the Nineties:

Yes, he was a big bloke. The kicker is that he was in Calgary last year, but I couldn't make it to his show. I figured I could always catch him another time, but I guess that'll never be.

Nice find on YouTube.

Well, like I told you before, I could have gone to Stevie Ray Vaughan's second-to-last concert, but decided to wait for his next visit. Bad call.

Well, we can't make good calls all the time. But we can make the best of what's given to us.

I also debated Sleater-Kinney's last concert at First Avenue in Minneapolis while they were touring for their album The Woods. They broke up shortly after that, apparently for good. With concerts, it is best to go when you have a chance -- you may never get another!
