Michael Dunford, a BIG part of one of my favorite band RENAISSANCE died November 20th
http://renaissancetouring.com/2012/11/m ... sses-away/

I don't know how many of you have heard about this band and, unlesss I'm mistaken, I'm the first one to talk about Michael Dunford's death. And combined with the recent back injury of lead singer Annie Haslam. Let's say this was not welcomed.

I'm pretty sad. There's not much bands these days that does that unique kind of music.
Bless Annie and the rest of the band. Hope time will heal.
:( :cry:


Oh yeah, I'm extremely bummed out. I just met Michael back in June when I saw Renaissance at NEARfest...

Rick Majerus, American College Basketball Coach. Age 64. Rick was a very good coach and a very fat man who had a history of heart problems. I saw Rick once in the jacuzzi at a hotel in Santa Clara, CA while his Utah team was there for a game. He used to live in hotels even when he was home. He was very well respected and even offered the Los Angeles Lakers job at one time.

Take Five is a top five forever favorite.

The suits didn't get it...it was originally rejected! No commercial potential!

He will live on.

Sad about Brubeck. He played a lot of notes.

Interesting version of Blue Rondo a la Turk. I can almost imagine one of Frank's bands interpreting this tune this way.

The Brubeck-Zappa instrumental mix.

These tunes all blend really well together, I heard this earlier this year and made a cd from it. They had more in common than you may guess. Very cool. Play their music indeed and add it to your Zappadan cebration! :mrgreen: 8) :mrgreen:

...and on another sad note, Oscar Niemeyer, the worldly famous architect just passed away at 104 years old, a few minutes ago:

Here are some of his buildings:

Here is BBC breaking news note on it:

Architect Niemeyer dies aged 104 New

Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer, who designed some of the finest modernist buildings of the 20th century, dies days before his 105th birthday.


He rose to international fame as the architect of the main government buildings in the futuristic Brazilian capital, Brasilia, inaugurated in 1960.

He also worked with Swiss-born modernist architect Le Corbusier on the UN building in New York.

He continued to work on new projects until earlier this year.

He died on Wednesday at a hospital in Rio de Janeiro.
Inspirational women's curves

Oscar Niemeyer was an early member of the Brazilian Communist Party and remained faithful to his beliefs after the fall of the Berlin Wall.

His bold futuristic designs in Brasilia made the new capital a dramatic statement of confidence in the future of Brazil, and an icon of modern architecture.

A student of the Le Corbusier, he developed a distinctive style defined by stark concrete and sweeping curves.

He famously once said the stylized swoops in his buildings were inspired by the curves of Brazilian women.

Mr Niemeyer went on to create more than 600 buildings around the world.

It's funny that I never heard Zappa mention Brubeck in any of the interviews I've read or heard over the years. They do seem to be mining some similar ground at times.

You Nor Cal forumers might already know this but Brubeck was born in Concord and went to UOP (the University of the Pacific in Stockton, CA).

George Duke may have been influenced by Brubeck though, isn't his piano playing on "RDNZL" a tad Brubeckian?

This photo of Ravi Shankar was taken by Terry Gilliam (yeah; that Terry Gilliam) at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967.
