[Music] Z’ev – Live in Iceland

We lost another legend today.

Percussionist Stefan Weisser, known to his fans and colleagues as Z’ev, passed on today at the age of 66. He left a body of work so important in experimental music that I expect tributes to pour out for days (including this one from our pals in Lithuania, Radikaliai!).

This free download is a release Z’ev did in Iceland in 2004. It gives a nice taste of what he could do with percussion.

Many thanks to my friend, Michael Schneider, for posting this video, which we share in Holger’s honor.

Rest in peace.

[Music] Chris Cornell (RIP) – Billie Jean

Chris Cornell took his life by suicide on the 17th of this month. He was 53 years old, and left a wife and a couple of children. He was also a fellow member of the Eastern (Greek) Orthodox Church. We offer prayers for a good son who fought a good fight in this life. May he finally have rest in his soul.

I can’t ever say I was that big of a fan of Soundgarden, but his solo work, as well as the Audioslave albums, really showcased the best voice of his generation. Rest in Peace.
