Hardy Fox from The Residents.



Bless him. I have to say I am glad he decloaked before the end so we got to learn about him and his husband and his life and other sundries there at end after all those hidden years.

My daughter had a nice email exchange with him when she was a little girl. He was sweet.

Sad sad sad.

Orrrrrr . . . . . . . . Maybe not, because nothing is ever clearcut with these guys . . . This is what is up on the official Rez page right now . . .

It looks as if poor Hardy is not long for this world but has not yet departed. He has changed his Bandcamp to say "Hardy Fox (1945 - 2018)". Bad times.

Neil Innes' Twitter feed says that early Bonzo Dog man Sam Spoons (Martin Ash to his ma) has flown away, though I have not seen confirmation elsewhere . . .

I just downloaded Jorma's new autiobio, so will be reading about Marty soon . . . .

RIP. I liked him with both Airplane and Starship.

Very sad news. Marty had a really great soulfull voice that was an integral part of the Jefferson Airplane/ Starship sound
- particularly in some of the shared vocals he sung with Grace Slick. He also added the 'love' song element to these bands,
as opposed to the more psychedelic/political and sc-fi Kantner/Slick songs - they added to the diversity of this great San Franciscan
band. He's probably best known now for the Jefferson Starship's  'Miracles' but my two great Marty moments are two earlier songs:-



The House At Pooneil Corner - Jefferson Airplane (great shared vocals/harmonies  with Grace Slick)



Caroline - Jefferson Starship (just a wonderful song/vocal)

R.I.P. With Kantner gone as well it really is the end of an era.

Sad news.  But doctors' predictions aren't always right.  It would be great if he survived into 2019 and was cogent enough to revise his own born-died posting.  I can see him writing something like:  "My report of my own death is greatly exaggerated."  

I'm sure Homer wasn't entirely pleased with Hardy throwing off the cloak of anonymity and confirming (what everyone admittedly already figured out) that he was indeed a member of The Residents. But I doubt Homer is worrying about that now.

Hardy's website has some great stories and is well worth checking out.  www.hardyfox.com

Lesson learned.  If you really want to see a musician--especially if they're older--see them when you get a chance.  Marty played locally awhile back.  I didn't go.  I should have.  He gave a great interview with a local writer in advance of that show. He was born in Cincinnati but was quite young when his family moved away.  He had some great stories about what he remembered about living in Cincinnati.

RIP, Marty.

Geoff Emerick, 72

Geoff Emerick, Beatles sound engineer, dies

His book about his time with the Beatles, Here, There and Everywhere is really good - fascinating for the detail about what he did but also on The Beatles themselves where he pulls no punches!

Agree about how good Emerick's book is . . . Learned a lot about him, his trade, and the artists he worked with.

RIP, sir.

Baritone sax man Hamiet Bluiett . . . http://stljazznotes.blogspot.com/2018/1 ... -2018.html

Some of his stuff as bandleader is good, but most of his stuff with World Saxophone Quartet is great . . . example on the opening cut here, which he penned:
