James Hugh Loden (May 1, 1928 – February 22, 2016), known professionally as Sonny James, was an American country music singer and songwriter best known for his 1957 hit, "Young Love". Dubbed the Southern Gentleman, James had 72 country and pop charted releases from 1953 to 1983, including an unprecedented five-year streak of 16 straight Billboard #1 singles among his 26 #1 hits. Twenty-one of his albums reached the country top ten from 1964 to 1976. In May 2007 Sonny, accompanied by his Southern Gentlemen, walked the red carpet and were inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Ah, one of those where you assume they're already long dead. "Young Love" still sounds good, nearly 60 years later. RIP Sad

Austrian conductor Nikolaus Harnoncourt has died at the age of 86 Sad
Born into a lineage that included some of Europe's most aristocratic families, Harnoncourt was also part of Austria's musical nobility, with mastery that put him on the level of other great postwar Austrian conductors Herbert von Karajan, Karl Boehm and Carlos Kleiber.

His concern for historical detail was legendary. He often distributed his own material to orchestras, adding expression marks on how to create more authentic or refined interpretations, aiming to erase what he called "traditionally traded" mistakes. Adding in period instruments as well as tempi and dynamics discarded by modern performances, Harnoncourt broke through in the 1970s from relative obscurity with a series of celebrated performances, particularly of Monteverdi and Mozart.

Noted British composer Sir Peter Maxwell-Davies has died at the age of 81
The wild child of contemporary music, he delighted in pushing the boundaries to the extent that some of his earlier works were described as unplayable.

But he later became an establishment figure and was appointed as Master of the Queen's Music from 2004 to 2014 - the musical equivalent of poet laureate.

Maxwell Davies, later known simply as Max, was born in Salford on 8 Sep 1934, the son of a factory worker,
RIP Sad

Also jazz star Ernestine Anderson has died at the age of 87
A singer from the day she was born (she could allegedly mimic Bessie Smith's raw vocals at the age of three) she refined her skills in church, and was enlisted to trumpeter Russell Jacquet's big band after winning a talent competition at the age of 12.

She went on to sing with Johnny Otis, performed at the inauguration of US President Eisenhower, and played over the world, from the Carnegie Hall to festivals in South America, Japan and London - where she set up home in the 1960s.

Anderson earned four Grammy nominations during her career - two of which came in the 1990s when she signed to Quincy Jones' Qwest label.
Anyone good enough for Quincy Jones is probably good enough for the rest of us. RIP Sad

RIP: Merle Haggard, country music icon, passes away on 79th birthday

SiriusXM is sad report that we’ve learned of the loss of a true icon of country music and close friend of Outlaw Country and Willie’s Roadhouse. “The Poet of the Common Man” and member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, Merle Haggard, has passed away on his birthday, at the age of 79. More information is forthcoming.
After honing his craft in the California honky tonks, Haggard helped forge the famous “Bakersfield Sound” that stormed the airwaves and jukeboxes of the 1960s with a string of signature songs like Mama Tried, Swinging Doors and The Bottle Let Me Down.
By the end of the decade, his songs Okie of Muskogee and The Fightin’ Side of Me became anthems of the Vietnam era’s “silent majority,” but instead of pandering to expectations, he went back to his country roots and recorded tributes to his musical heroes Jimmie Rodgers and Bob Wills.
Over five decades of recordings, he scored an amazing 38 No. 1 hits to go along with Grammys, ACMS and CMA awards membership in the Country Music Hall of Fame, Nashville Songwriter’s Hall of Fame, and the Kennedy Center Honors as a songwriter, vocalist, bandleader, and performing artist.
Last December, Merle Haggard was forced to postpone a string of concert dates after being hospitalized for double pneumonia. He called into the Dallas Wayne show on Willie’s Roadhouse (Ch. 59) to give an update on his condition and thank his fans, the people who helped care for him and said that he really appreciates all Willie Nelson and Willie’s Roadhouse does to support his music.

Statement from Daryl Hall on the passing of Prince:
I, like everyone, was shocked to hear of Prince's passing. His talent and energy was phenomenal, and I use that word literally.. He was a phenomenon, elemental, capricious, those words describe him and his music.
I remember playing with John at the Roxy in Hollywood, back in the late seventies. Prince came to every performance, and just sat in the back, watching.
When I met him about a year later, he gave me a cordial hello. I mention that, because it was so unusual to get response from him.
He was a complicated man, who possessed enormous talent. He will be sorely missed.
D

John Oates --- I have always been a Prince fan. Over his all too brief career he firmly established himself among the legends of R&B and Pop. His live shows were always electrifying and powerful. He had it all, songwriting, performing, playing, singing, producing. He will be missed but his music will live on forever.

Jody Watley --- Truth. Always an inspiration to me as an artist.

Annie Lennox --- Genius… Visionary.. Virtuoso…Legendary…Untouchable…
Love Peace and gratitude…

Chaka Khan --- I LOVED him, the world LOVED him. Now he's at peace with his Father. Rest in power, Prince, my brother.  

Billy Idol --- RIP PRINCE. From page 152 of my autobio, I share my memories of first seeing him live at the Ritz in NYC in the early '80s.

It's another sad day in what is turning out to be quite a blood-soaked year. Nice of Billy there to use a man's death to plug his own book. But anyway, whilst he tailed off badly around the late 90s, he still had say a 15 year "reign" full of great singles and albums. RIP Sad

Lonnie Mack has died at the age of 74, said his record label Alligator Records.

"Groundbreaking guitarist and vocalist Lonnie Mack, known as one of rock’s first true guitar heroes, died on April 21, 2016 of natural causes at Centennial Medical Center near his home in Smithville, Tennessee. His early instrumental recordings – among them Wham! and Memphis -- influenced many of rock's greatest players, including Eric Clapton, Duane Allman, Keith Richards, Jimmy Page and especially Stevie Ray Vaughan. He was 74," the statement read.

He is survived by five children and multitudes of grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Funeral arrangements are pending.

Mack released 12 albums in his lifetime and was widely known for his famous Gibson Flying V guitar, which he used exclusively during his career.

Probably one to be overshadowed by a particularly bleak week, but still:

Papa Wemba has died at the age of 66, having collapsed during a concert.
In a career spanning almost half a century, Wemba became known as the "the king of Congolese rumba".

He was also a style icon, popularising the cult movement known as the Sapeurs.

The young men who make up the Sapeurs take great pride in their appearance, spending huge amounts of money on designer clothes.

He helped modernise Congolese rumba music, making it one of the most popular sounds in Africa.

Together with his bands Zaiko Langa Langa, Isifi and Viva La Musica, he racked up hit after hit, including L'Esclave and Le Voyageur, and worked with international stars like Peter Gabriel.
RIP Sad

John Berry's death was noted over here, even though it would be highly charitable to describe him as making much contribution to the Beastie Boys.

Besides the unforgettable Mister Ed, I believe Alan Young was the voice of Scrooge McDuck, which gets him respect in my book. RIP to them both anyway Sad

A Dayton funk music pioneer has died.

Ohio Players' bassist Marshall "Rock" Jones died in Houston, Texas, today at about 5:30 a.m., his daughters Donna Williams and Charlotte Phillips confirmed.

"We appreciate all of the support and prayers,” Williams said. “We lost not only a father, a grandfather and an uncle, we lost an icon to the community and an icon to his family.”

The family is planning a memorial in Dayton. Details will be announced later.

James "Diamond" Williams, the Ohio Players' leader said Jones will be missed.

“He was inventive, and he was creative. He was a great musician,” Williams. “Marshall Jones contributed greatly, and we will miss him.”

The Dayton native was 75.

Jones was with the Ohio Players during the height of the legendary band’s success.

He was a member when the group started in Dayton in 1959 as the Ohio Untouchables.

Williams said Jones had battled cancer and had suffered a recent stroke.

Fairport Convention alumnus Dave Swarbrick has died at the age of 75 Sad
Born in London in 1941, Swarbrick played on recordings with folk pioneers Ewan MacColl and Peggy Seeger before coming to prominence as a guest on Fairport Convention's classic 1969 album Unhalfbricking.

He went on to become a permanent member of the band, writing and arranging songs for their albums - including on the influential electric folk album Liege & Lief - and performing with them up until they disbanded in 1979.

He also recorded his own solo albums, as well as working with the likes of Martin Carthy, Bert Jansch and fellow Fairport alumni Sandy Denny and Richard Thompson.

A weekend that may not be forgotten for a long time kicked off with the untimely murder of Christina Grimmie in Orlando. She had been a contestant on the US version of The Voice, and was shot dead whilst signing autographs after a concert. She was just 22 Sad RIP

This hasn't yet been linked with the subsequent mass shootings in Orlando yesterday, but it's a staggering coincidence otherwise Sad
