James Ingram, R&B Singer, Dead at 66



James Ingram, Grammy-winning soul singer Dead at 66
It’s another big loss to the music world. All his hits from the 80’s and 90’s are still being played on radio stations all over the world. He had 8 Top 40 Billboard hits. Starting with two from Quincy Jones’ ‘The Dude” album in 1981 – “Just Once” and One Hundred Ways.” The following year he scored his first of two number one hits, “Baby Come To Me” a duet with Patti Austin and a few months later came another duet, this time with Michael McDonald, “Ya Mo B There.” There was also his pairing with Kim Carnes and Kenny Rogers on “What About Me” in 1984. One of his biggest hits came in 1986 with a duet featuring Linda Ronstadt called “Somewhere Out There.” It Was from the animated film “An American Tale.” Also that second #1 tune was actually his last hit from 1990, “I Don’t Have The Heart.”

Ingram also had multiple Grammy nominations. He won two ‘Best Make R&B Performance” for One Hundred Ways and “Best R&B Performance By a Duo or Group with Vocals for “Ya Mo B There” with Michael McDonald.

Through his association with Quincy Jones he also had a co-write with the producer on Michael Jacksons’ “PYT (Pretty Young Thing)” from “Thriller.” He also wrote Jones on the song “The Secret Garden” which also featured Barry White, El Debarge and Al B. Sure.

Debbie Allen, Ingram’s long-time friend and creative partner, released the following statement. “He will always be cherished, loved and remembered for his genius, his love of family and his humanity. I am blessed to have been so close. We will forever speak his name.”

He was born in Akron, Ohio but later moved to L.A. He once played keyboards for Ray Charles.

TMZ is reporting he had been battling brain cancer. – by John Beaudin

Don Henley On Deacon Frey's Future With The Eagles



Don Henley On The Future on Glenn Frey’s Son In The Eagles
Could the Eagles have continued without the help of Deacon Frey? No according to Henley. The singer/drummer told Rolling Stone magazine they needed “family blood’ to keep the Eagles’ spirit alive.

So is there a specific time on how long Deacon will be in the Eagles? Henley said, the “wonderful part of it and the sadness that goes with it. I’ve told him that he doesn’t need to feel obligated to do this indefinitely. If he wants to start his own band and write his own music, he should do that. He can do this as long as we all agree that we want to do it. He may want to carve out his own future, and that’s just fine.” As many have pointed out, not that Eagles need any more fans, Deacon is sure to bring even younger fans to their shows. It’s extraordinary what that young man has done. I saw him sing “Peaceful Easy Feeling” at his father’s memorial service. As difficult as that might have been, he was so brave and composed. I’m sure, on the inside, he was churning. After a few months went by, I thought, “Why not see if he would like to be in the band?”

As for advice Henley and Joe Walsh told him to keep his eye on the work. Not to over-think any of their shows.

On that other new kid in town, Vince Gill Henley said, “It was a no-brainier for us to get Vince. Nobody else, other than Deacon, was even discussed. Glenn played golf with him. And Vince was in a band called Pure Prairie League. They did a style of music similar to ours – country-influenced pop. He fit like a glove. And his personality is great. He’s just glad to be there. He’s probably the happiest guy onstage.”

The Eagles are celebrating the 40th anniversary of their biggest album “Hotel California” by releasing a remastered repackaged edition. – by John Beaudin

Former Fleetwood Mac Guitarist & Singer Danny Kirwan Dead at 68



Former Fleetwood Mac Guitarist & Singer Danny Kirwan Dead at 68
He played on albums like, ‘Then Play On’ (1969), ‘Kiln House’ (1970), ‘Future Games’ (1971), ‘Bare Trees’ (1972)

Mick Fleetwood released the following statement on his Facebook page, “Today was greeted by the sad news of the passing of Danny Kirwan in London, England. Danny was a huge force in our early years. His love for the Blues led him to being asked to join Fleetwood Mac in 1968, where he made his musical home for many years, Danny’s true legacy, in my mind, will forever live on in the music he wrote and played so beautifully as a part of the foundation of Fleetwood Mac, that has now endured for over fifty years. Thank you, Danny Kirwan. You will forever be missed!”

He played on their only British #1 song – the instrumental ‘Albatross’ as well as the hits ‘Man of the World’ and a real signature song for the early blues Fleetwood Mac sound ‘Oh Well.’ He was also on ‘Rattlesnake Shake.’

He was born on May 13, 1950 in Brixton, South London. Kirwin was in his teens when he was spotted by Fleetwood Mac.

The late Bob Welch of Fleetwood Mac who committed suicide in 2012 and who had the solo hits ‘Sentimental Lady’ and ‘Ebony Eye’ had a sometimes strained relationship with Kirwan once said, “He was a talented, gifted musician, almost equal to Pete Green in his beautiful guitar playing and faultless string bends.” In another interview he said, “Danny wasn’t a very lighthearted person, to say the least. He probably shouldn’t have been drinking as much as he did, even at his young age… He was always very intense about his work, as I was, but he didn’t seem to ever be able to distance himself from it… and laugh about it. Danny was the definition of ‘deadly serious’.”

He had problems with alcoholism and mental illness. At one point he was homeless. It was his drinking that got him kicked out of Fleetwood Mac.

Rolling Stone magazine printed a quote from The Independent from a rare interview with Kirwan from 1993. It was after Mick fleetwood went looking for his old bandmate going as far as asking the missing Person Bureau to look for him. At that time Kirwin said, “I get by and I suppose I am homeless, but then I’ve never really had a home since our early days on tour. I couldn’t handle it all mentally and I had to get out. I can’t settle.”

When Fleetwood Mac was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998 his name was up there as well but he did not attend.

Kirwan died yesterday June 8, 2018. No cause of death was announced. – by John Beaudin

Bay City Rollers Bassist Alan Longmuir Dead at 70



Bay City Rollers Bassist Alan Longmuir Dead at 70
He was certainly part of a phenomenon in the 70’s. They were not exactly a rockers delight but it was hard to ignore Scotland’s Bay City Rollers in 1975-76 in North American and even earlier in the U.K.

It was actually Alan Longmuir who formed the Bay City Rollers with his drummer brother Derek and vocalist Gordon Clark. They were called the Saxons back then but later changed their name to the Bay City Rollers when a dart was thrown at a map landing on Bay City, Michigan.

As mentioned long before they came to North American the boys scored eight top 10 hits in the UK including ‘Keep on Dancing,’ ‘Remember (Sha-La-La-La),”Summerlove Sensation,”All of Me Loves All of You,’ Then there were two #1’s ‘Bye, Bye, Baby’ (which was featured in the film Love Actually in 2003) and ‘Give a Little Love’ followed by ‘Love Me Like I Love You.’

But 1974 the Bay City Rollers assembled their classic line up which included the Alan and Derek Longmuir, guitarists Eric Faulkner and Stuart Wood and lead vocalist Les McKeown.

Longmuir was born Edinburgh, Scotland on June 20, 1948. He actually left the Bay City Rollers at the height of their career in 1976 only to return in 1978. He reportedly contracted an illness while on vacation in Mexico.

Liam Rudden who wrote biographical stage play I Ran With the Gang in collaboration with Longmuir wrote, Alan was one of the most gentle, generous and kindhearted people I have ever known. He touched the lives of everyone he met with a smile that made them feel special, insisting that despite his amazing adventures in life he was still just ‘a plumber from Edinburgh.”

I was not part of “Rollermania” so I had no tartan’s in my closet but they were a force on the radio for a while.

The group sold an estimated 120 million records. There were many reunions throughout the years but Alan Longmuir said many times that there was too much work and not enough payback in doing the music. There were many arguments on where all the money went during the heyday of the band.

Singer Les McKeown, described his friend as “the original Bay City Roller” and bandmate Stuart Wood said he would “remember the good times we had for over 40 years”. – by John Beaudin

Moody Blues' Ray Thomas Dead at 76 – Our Tribute



Moody Blues’ Ray Thomas dead at 76
UPDATE – RAY THOMAS DIED FROM A HEART ATTACK
He died at his home after a battle with prostate cancer. His record company released the following statement, “It is with profound sorrow and sadness that Cherry Red Records and Esoteric Recordings regret to announce that Ray Thomas, founder member, flutist and vocalist of the Moody Blues, passed away suddenly at his home in Surrey on Thursday. We are deeply shocked by his passing and will miss his warmth, humor and kindness. It was a privilege to have known and worked with him and our thoughts are with his family and his wife Lee at this sad time.”

Thomas had to step away from the band just a few years ago and in 2014 confirmed that he had been diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Thomas was with the band from the beginning, back in the Denny Laine days and before they carved their future song with Justine Hayward and John Lodge. Their first album “The Magnificent Moodies” featured the hit “Go Now” which was sung by Laine. It would be their only UK No. 1 song. That was 1965.

By 1967 they were a different band. They were no longer chasing that Merseybeat sound of the British invasion instead they carved out their own brand of orchestral rock elements and an early helping of PProg Rock. Their second album, “Days of Future Passed.” Their record label wanted the band to record Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9 but they had their own ideas. It was a delicious spacious adventure and in 2007 Rolling Stone included it in its list of essential albums of 1967. Thomas provided Flute and backing vocals on the big hit from the album, “Nights in White Satin.” and flute on it’s follow up “Tuesday Afternoon.”

The band followed that up with the UK #5 album “In Search of the Lost Chord” in 68 and their first of three number one albums, “On the Threshold of a Dream.” The other two were “A Question of Balance” in 1970 and “Every Good Boy Deserves Favour” the following year. The band took a break in the mid seventies and broke up until 1977.

The moody Blues has another string of success in the 80’s with “Long Distance Voyager,” “The Present” and “The Other Side of Life.” At that point Thomas’ role started to diminish as they went deeper in 80’s synth-pop. He played a bigger role by 1991’s “Key of the Kingdom.” He retired in 2002.

Thomas was a showman and served as the band MC quite often and he also was a prolific writer with the band.

Thomas and the Moody Blues have sold over 70 million albums and are set to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year. – by John Beaudin
