So sorry to hear this – music fans have lost a true rock and roll legend, one whose influence can be heard everywhere from R.E.M. to Cheap Trick. The entire genre of “alternative” music is basically a result of a few years of songwriting by this guy. Somewhere, the angels are singing “The Ballad of El Goodo.”

Be sure and give #1 Record/Radio City a listen today in memoriam…
