I've never been the biggest blues-rock fan, but man, could this guy light it up. Deepest condolences.

I think you'd be hard-pressed to find a blues musician who DOESN'T "light it up".

actually, it's easy, and I don't think Alvin would've ever referred to himself as a blues musician.

Deftones bassist Chi Cheng, dead at 42:    You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

He was badly injured in a car crash in 2008, and Deftones fans always held out hope that someday he'd recover. Sadly, it was not to be.  :'(

Barry Fey - one of the greatest concert promotors ever! He was instrumental in bringing a lot of the biggest acts into the USA from the 60's to the 90's.

He also was very instrumental in U2's success by believing in them and promoting them. He is one of the producers of Under A Blood Red Sky and he's the one introducing the band as they took the stage for that show.
