Just read about the passing of Martin Birch, Engineer & Producer of so many Hard Rock bands in the 70's and 80's. His name will be on a record sleeve in most folks album collections. Deep Purple, Rainbow, Sabbath, Iron Maiden to name just a few.

Very sad. He produced many of my all time favourite albums.
R.I.P.
I set a course just east of Lyra
And northwest of Pegasus
Flew into the light of Deneb
Sailed across the Milky Way
On my ship, the Rocinante
Wheeling through the galaxies
Headed for the heart of Cygnus
Headlong into mystery
The x-ray is her siren song
My ship cannot resist her long
Nearer to my deadly goal
Until the black hole
Gains control

RIP Doc

R.I.P. Trini Lopez. The legendary American singer, guitarist, actor and Gibson signature artist has died from COVID-19, at the age of 83.

As well as multiple chart hits, Trini’s career also included several film roles including the classic 1967 war movie The Dirty Dozen. He also had two Gibson signature models bearing his name. The Trini Lopez Deluxe was a variation on the Barney Kessel model, while the Trini Lopez Standard combined ES-335 and Firebird features. Both Dave Grohl and Noel Gallagher own, and use, the Trini Lopez Standard model.

Very sad but not surprising with his health issues and rock n roll life style. I was not aware of his accident two months ago. UFO are one of my all time favourite bands and I have played there albums today and yesterday. We have now lost Peter Way, Paul Chapmon and Paul Raymond. Was lucky enough to see them with tha later on their final tour just before his passing.
