Wow! That is sad news about Horner. He was a creative genius. Him, John Williams, Hans Zimmer, Thomas Newman and Morricone created scores that were extraordinary and often better than the films. A real shame indeed.

Squier inspired multiple generations of kids to pick up a bass, showing it could be a lot more than just a background rhythm instrument. A sad day.

Underrated as a composer too.

Lots of writing credits to his name.

As a more recent poster proposed, speaking about who, where, when we may have seen a passed performer.  For me, Yes was my first concert 9/4/1978 at the New Haven Coliseum.  My older sister and her boyfriend (now husband) brought me to the alternatively smoke filled venue.  I was 16 at the time, my first exposure to such an event and Yes in the round was certainly a memory I will never forget.  The link has photos of the show.  I did not take these, but it is of the performance I went to.

Singer-songwriter Colin Vearncombe, who performed under the name Black, has died at the age of 53, two weeks after being injured in a car crash.  The Liverpool singer's 1987 single Wonderful Life was a top 10 hit around the world.  They used to play this song at half-time at Liverpool and Everton football matches back then.  Brings back memories.

damn, this one hurts. I was an RnB and funk kid; when I started playing trumpet, their songs (and Chicago's as well), and they were the benchmark for my progress. In addition, my 1st slow dance with a girl was to their song, "After the Love Is Gone."

RIP, Maurice. Will be cranking that EW&F box set loud tonight.
