Alan Vega 1938 - 2016

Bildergebnis für alan vega

It seems like the year goes on like it started and takes artists that I grew up away. The sad news arrived when I was on Echorich's site. He said the right words and I just have to agree. He was a hero to my younger days as well and his first records were on heavy rotation at my home in the early 80's. I loved the way he used to make Rockabilly to his very unique sound.

Another highlight was the fantastic Viet Vet - a 12 minute journey through the hot and dangerous jungle. Gloomy, sharp and dangerous.

Rest In Peace, Alan
