08.09.06: Tribute to ARTHUR LEE & LOVE (RIP)
We the Congregation of the Almighty Church of Rock and Roll have lost another guiding light. On August 9th, Arthur Lee passed away after an intense battle with acute myeloid leukemia. His contributions to the evolution of Rock via his TIMELESS band Love are immeasurable. Love blended elements of folk, blues, garage rock, flamenco and jazz to create sounds which would inspire his contemporaries (such as Jimi Hendrix and our other recently departed hero Syd Barrett) as well as future generations of artists.
Tonight on WE'RE GONNA BE TIMELESS, we will be spinning Love and other concurrent bands (Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, etc.) and some of the bands Love has inspired (The Clientele, Belle and Sebastian, and so many more.)
