Daevid Allen: Jan. 13, 1938 – Mar. 13, 2015 - Daevid is co-founder of Soft Machine and Gong, among his solo work, all being reflected here. As a huge fan of Daevid's I literally drove through a blinding blizzard from Newport, RI to catch him live in Boston. I was a VIP due to my radio connections and was invited into the dressing room for an after show party. One of the nicest and most bizarre people I have ever met, as were Gillian Smith and Didier Malherbe. Although there was a small turnout due to the snow, this was truly one of the most memorable concerts & backstage experiences I have ever had. 

Prince: Jun. 7, 1958 - Apr. 21, 2016

Frank Zappa: Dec. 21, 1940 - Dec. 4, 1993 - Truly one of the greatest guitarists and ingenious & imaginative  musicians that has ever lived. I was fortunate to see Frank play live on multiple occasions with one of the more memorable being the Joe's Garage tour in Norfolk, VA. And while I am saddened with his passing, fortunately Dweezil has picked up the gauntlet. If you get the chance I highly recommend catching Dweezil's Zappa Plays Zappa tour if he does it again. Great concert from a great guitarist.
