RIP Grant McLennan
Tragic news. The lovely Grant McLennan died today. If you don't know him, he was a founding member of the brilliant Austalian group Go-Betweens, a seminal 80's pop band who had recently started releasing music again. Grant also had a very decent solo career. I love the picture of him above - his face tells you he was a friendly guy, doesn't it?
A few songs to recommend:
Grant solo: "In Your Bright Ray" "Simone and Perry" and "Lighting Fires"
Go-Betweens: "Bye Bye Pride" "Streets Of Your Town"
I intend to update this post soon with MP3s so you can hear what a great musician he was. He was only 48 and died in his sleep; I feel so sorry for all those who loved him - at least his music doesn't die.
