Man, that's sad news. A fantastic musician has left us. But at least he has found peace now.

My favourite Glen song----it was in my piano repertoire for years:

a diseased bunch of mo'fos if there ever was one… their beauty is so awesome that listening to them at their best is like being in some vast dream cathedral decorated with a thousand gleaming American pop culture icons.

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

Leon Russell or smb. else said Glen was the best guitar player he met ever. Is there session musician who could sing as well? It looks like he's praised as guitarist & singer. Aside from that, I liked his stage presence/ interviews - humble, classy, no rich rockstar image. He was jolly likable, to be short.

Short notice: the cat you see to the left is the best. Not counting your indoor cat who might have habit sitting at your left side when you post in SmileySmile.
