More RIP ing
Love singer Arthur Lee dies at 61
Arthur Lee, singer and guitarist of the influential 1960s band Love, has died in Memphis at the age of 61 following a battle with acute myeloid leukaemia.
The multiracial band recorded three groundbreaking albums that fused rock, blues and psychedlia - the self-titled Love, Da Capo and Forever Changes.
A really sad day- these are some of my favourite albums ever! Ben Leyden told me a friend of his used to listen to 'Forever changes' every morning for 6 years. One of the best albums ever made. I'm listening to 'Da Capo' right now.
I've just been reminded that i hung out with him for a bit in Edinburgh. Serious ruler.....
His voice is loud in the shop right now...RIP brother.
