Some went on to pass their grade 8 guitar, some achieved commercial success and all have a more fulfilled existence as a result of his passion and hard work. His most recent songs were performed live with his band Safehaus a Glastonbury, UK based Alternative FolkRock, Alt-country, band. Throughout 2016 and early 2017 Ben's music was increasing in its popularity being featured on a global video game advert, airtime on BBC R6 (Cerys) and R2 (Jo Wiley). Ben had also worked with other UK musicians including Michael Bannister and Ali McErlaine (Texas), Shelly Poole (Red Sky July) as well as touring with Safehaus across U.K., France and Italy. His passing is a shock to students and fans alike and he'll be sorely missed.

I know it's not as cerebral to like Grant's songs as much as Bob's songs, but just as there are people who like McCartney's songs better than Lennon's, I always liked Hüsker Dü's poppy songs. A lot. And for the most part, that meant Grant's songs. I got to meet the band between shows at the Roxy, and those few minutes are the cornerstone of my theory that nice guys get the breaks. The band had just made the leap to a major record label deal, while some other "indy" bands continued to struggle. Grant was thrilled to talk to us, about the signing, being in LA, but also was genuinely interested in our radio station, KCPR. He was thrilled to learn that we'd driven a couple hundred miles to see his little band. But he was also a rock star, not just a nice guy making music. The challenges of that are well known, and Grant apparently jumped into the life with both feet. It wasn't long, really, before the band dissolved.

R.I.P. Grant Hart. I loved your music.

I was saddened to tears on hearing the news of the passing of Walter Becker. Steely Dan is one of my absolute personal favorite rock acts, ever. Their music has meant a lot to me over many years, both at great parties and during moments alone. His surviving partner, Donald Fagen, issued a memorial letter praising Becker's talent and remarking that he was "smart as a whip, an excellent guitarist and a great songwriter... He was cynical about human nature, including his own, and hysterically funny."
In commemoration of his passing, I've submitted eight images for "Deacon Blues," including this one:

Just saw this on the News. One of my favorite 70's bands I never got to see, but wore out many of my cassette's listening to them and a few 8 tracks at my first real job. {#Roflol}

I always say this when a creator of one of my favorite album passes. It rarely if ever happens, but I'm hopeful it will this time.

 
Listening to some of it now.  Pretty tasty stuff.  The playlist on the page also has Medical Science which was only released on the Japanese CD.
