--- Quote from: Geoff Doane on July 22, 2021, 08:28:20 AM ---Jerry Granelli, a musician who many of you probably never heard of, but almost certainly have heard, died Tuesday in Halifax, NS.  He played drums with the Vince Guaraldi Trio when they recorded what became the soundtrack for A Charlie Brown Christmas in 1965.  Jerry was ambivalent about the recording for most of his life, partly because despite its success, he made less than $100 for the session.  But his attitude softened later in life, and he took the show on the road for several Christmas seasons.  I shot the accompanying photo on a concert that we recorded and shot video of, in my previous career, back in 2014.

:( :( :( :( Sad news...

Helge A Bentsen:
From ZZ Top fb page:

"We are saddened by the news today that our Compadre, Dusty Hill, has passed away in his sleep at home in Houston, TX.  We, along with legions of ZZ Top fans around the world, will miss your steadfast presence, your good nature and enduring commitment to providing that monumental bottom to the ‘Top'. We will forever be connected to that "Blues Shuffle in C.”
You will be missed greatly, amigo.
Frank & Billy

Dusty Hill, ZZ Top.   That Lil Ole Band From Texas, same lineup for 52 years. 

Hope he gets in a few more rounds of Beer Drinkin' and Hell Raisin'.

Ron Popiel, the guy who popularized TV-pitched products of dubious worth (Mr Microphone, anyone, or the Popiel Pocket Fisherman?) has gone to backorder status at age 86.

Closer to home, native Iowan Joey Jordison of Slipknot passed at 46.
