Crap.

Back in the late 70s (or early 80s) I did the monitor mix for David Grisman, Tony Rice, Darol Anger and Rob Wasserman at the Paulo Soleri amphitheater.  They were great people to work with and very gracious.  Tony was funny, self effacing and kind.  They were very different from some of the prima donnas back then.  They were also pulling on some insane weed  :D

Great night under the stars with amazing music!

Wow. Another massive loss.

From his official FB page just now:

It is with great sadness we announce that on February 9th, Chick Corea passed away at the age of 79, from a rare form of cancer which was only discovered very recently.

Throughout his life and career, Chick relished in the freedom and the fun to be had in creating something new, and in playing the games that artists do.

He was a beloved husband, father and grandfather, and a great mentor and friend to so many. Through his body of work and the decades he spent touring the world, he touched and inspired the lives of millions.

Though he would be the first to say that his music said more than words ever could, he nevertheless had this message for all those he knew and loved, and for all those who loved him:
“I want to thank all of those along my journey who have helped keep the music fires burning bright. It is my hope that those who have an inkling to play, write, perform or otherwise, do so. If not for yourself then for the rest of us. It’s not only that the world needs more artists, it’s also just a lot of fun.

“And to my amazing musician friends who have been like family to me as long as I’ve known you: It has been a blessing and an honor learning from and playing with all of you. My mission has always been to bring the joy of creating anywhere I could, and to have done so with all the artists that I admire so dearly—this has been the richness of my life.”

Chick’s family will of course appreciate their privacy during this difficult time of loss.
Laugh and the world laughs with you. Cry and you'll have to blow your nose.

Larry Flint (the publisher of Hustler) died too, if anyone cares.

Chick = an uplifting positive force in the world with great music to raise our spirits and challenge our intellect

Flint = a douchebag porn pusher

Yes, this really sucks. I should have watched more of him live. 2021 is starting to feel like 2020 v.2...
