Music today has been Ozzy Osbourne’s cartoon metal and the album Patient Number 9, featuring Jeff Beck on the title track, I still can’t believe he died so suddenly. But whilst we are on the subject of musical losses (the ones I haven’t mentioned), the great Ian Bairnson left us too. He played that memorable riff on Pilot’s January and was on Top Of The Pops with his double-neck Gibson SG. He also played on the early Kate Bush albums and with the Alan Parsons Project. Gordon Lightfoot has also gone with his 12-string acoustic, his evocative voice, and meaningful songs. But the list goes on in guitarist land, Mudcrutch’s Tom Leadon, Skynyrd’s Gary Rossington, Yardbirds‘ Top Topham, and last but not least the nicest man, David Lindley who played on Starfish. RIP.
