    A legend (I don't say that lightly).

    With McCoy Tyner gone and Keith Jarrett impaired by a stroke that maybe leaves Herbert Hancock as the last jazz piano great of that generation.

    I'll never forget as a student in 75 seeing Return to Forever playing Southampton Uni Student Union to about 100 people. It was mesmerising.

    Grammy Man, 69 nomination, 23 winners.

    He was in a special class, with few equals.
    At least, we have a veritable feast of listening material.

    That's so weird. I had never heard of him until I got my Dad's album collection last week. One of the last albums is a Chick Corea album, who I had never heard of before that day. I'm looking through YouTube Music later that night and see his name again! After never seeing it before, I saw it twice in one day. Then, again today, because of his passing.

    Rest in Peace, Chick.

    One day not far from now, all of the original guitar heroes will be gone. There won't be anyone left that was alive to tell us about how it was in the heyday of rock n roll, etc... Much like WW2 vets today. It pains me to think about.

    There won't be any more Gregg Allmans or Jeff Becks or Robert Plants or Jimmy Pages etc... I don't look forward to that day.

    Man. RIP.

    Saw him perhaps ten years ago with Gary Burton. He was truly one of the greats.
