Musician Deaths - 2018
#41
love all those 60's hits
and even the Freeway song JOSH mentioned
that album Who's Zoomin Who? from 1985 was considered a comeback album
being her highest charting since the 70's

it also gave us this standout for me

Another one of the greats gone. The list is getting depressingly long.

GEOFF EMERICK (sound engineer)

aged: 72

cause of death: cardiac arrest

without George Martin and Geoff Emerick revolutionising the recording processes and inventing techniques that artists take for granted
in the music industry a lot of classic albums we know today would probably not sound like they do:

Geoff worked as sound engineer on a range of artists albums/songs from Beatles, Paul McCartney, Elvis Costello, Robin Trower, Hollies,
Split Enz. Stealers Wheel, Judy Garland etc etc

PETE SHELLY

aged 63
C.O.D: Cardiac Arrest

one of the most influential musicians from the UK has just dies, lead vocals/writer/guitar with punk band Buzzcocks,
was also a successful solo artist in the UK...I always thought of his solo work to be very similar to that of Peter Gabriel...
I wasn't a big fan of Buzzcocks but did like several of their singles, unfortunately, I never bought any...
I do have a couple of his solo albums on vinyl though...

heres the article: https://www.msn.com/en-au/entertainment/...spartanntp
