RE: yet another RIP post... (in reply to Piwin

Wtf??? Terrible.......
When I was 14, my first tattoo ever, in a garage, was(is) a CFH on my arm. Not saying I’d do it again at this age but I do still love Pantera and at that time they were the only band carrying the thrash metal cross. Ugh.....that’s basically the entire Abbot family then, their parents must be a wreck...
RIP Vinnie....

Was my college buddy’s favorite drummer so I had to learn several pantera tunes in order to jam with him

Any info on cause of death? I remember when his brother was murdered on stage, poor guy

Looks like it was a heart attack in his sleep at his home in Vegas.

Glad you picked up on Sir Roger Scruton's death, Piwin. He was a classic conservative and a true philosopher. I say "classic conservative" because he believed in "conserving" what is best about Western Civilization, much as Kenneth Clark did, while dismissing as irrelevant the various "movements" of the zeitgeist.

Yes, he was an important figure on the right - one of only a few though. But it seems there are now some small signs of a backlash against the typical 'woke' mentality which has inexplicably become such a force in the past decade or so. Laurence Fox on the dreadful BBC Question Time for instance. Douglas Murray is another. Let's hope it's a trend that continues.

RE: yet another RIP post... (in reply to hamia

Scruton was an interesting philosopher and I relied on his little book about Kant to pass an exam, so I owe him that. But he wrote race-baiting stuff for money and gave intellectual cover to bigots such as Murray. I agree that Question Time is terrible, partly because they have irrelevant idiots like Fox on it.

Here is chapter and verse: https://www.politics.co.uk/comment-analysis/2019/04/25/scruton-is-part-of-an-intellectual-culture-giving-respectabi

Portes is not some raving wokie, he’s a very sober economist. But he does the numbers on immigration, so he’s well placed to call out the sort of bigotry that Scruton spouted for money.

And now for something completely different: Terry Jones.

I'd like to pay homage to him but I can already hear a shrill voice replying "Homage?! You're all drunk! It's disgusting! Out!"

I just found out that the great Argentine guitarist Juanjo Dominguez passed away Feb 10, 2019, at the age of 67. RIP, Maestro.

Here is a recently-uploaded video of him casually whirl-winding his way through Perpetuum Mobile by Paganini - relentless three and a half minutes of scales at 165 bpm:



Besides being a virtuoso classical guitar player and known for his multi-string tremolo, he performed amazing arrangements of Argentine tangos, valses and milongas.

La Cumparsita:




Mozo Guapo (milonga) and Pedacito de Cielo (vals):

I just watched a special about him last week! He was such a brilliant guitarist. Thankfully, it appears he was able to return to making music in his later years.

RE: yet another RIP post... (in reply to Piwin

Thanks for the word, Piwin. He was such a great musician, not "just" a classical guitarist (coming from the jazz world -- bringing back a respect for rhythm, etc), but a great lutenist, an early music powerhouse (his consort), the patronage and addition to the classical repertoire by commissioning what are now standard pieces, collaborating with other greats (John Williams), his patronage of great luthierie (Jose Romanillos), etc...

Thanks for posting, Piwin. I had the good fortune to attend a performance by Julian Bream in Phoenix, Arizona in 1972. RIP indeed.

I got to see him as well as part of my fathers guitar series. I can’t remember it much, but it was at George mason. I love his guitarra series, everybody should watch that. Here’s my favorite clip

RE: yet another RIP post... (in reply to Piwin

I saw numerous posts about Bream's passing yesterday, but didn't respond to any of them. I had nothing to say.

Today I will say that Bream was my favorite classical guitarist. The set of 20-odd RCA CDs occupies the widest shelf space of any single collection among the 1900 or so discs.

I saw and heard him in concert a number of times. He always gave a masterful and moving performance.

I was privileged to meet him in the late 1970s when the old Austin Guitar Society organized a concert here in Austin. It fell to me to pick him up at the airport and take him to the hotel. He was utterly down to earth and friendly. We had a glass of wine or two in the hotel bar. He stayed in town for a couple of days, and I drove him to parties at private houses, where he played and encouraged local players.

A great and influential musician, commissioner of works from the greatest contemporary composers, resurrector of Renaissance lute music, a distinguished teacher--simply a wonderful person.

Rest in peace, Julian.

How can it be that both guys are playing on the famous '73 Romanillos #501? And I thought Bream was the only one allowed to record in Wardour Chapel. Something
is fishy about this.....

Clearly he and the guitar are entangled and both in a state of superposition.
