Bob Gullotti (Drummer) Has Passed Away, R.I.P.

Jazz drummer and Berklee College of Music professor Bob Gullotti has reportedly passed away as first revealed by The Lilypad, a venue he frequently performed at. He performed there regularly as a founding member of the Fringe, a free jazz band. And his playing first came into my life through the free jazz experimental album that Trey Anastasio was a part of, Surrender to the Air.

Over the years he performed with Phish multiple times, first on October 23, 1996 at the Hartford Civic Center, then during a two-night stint in Texas during 1997.

Our thoughts are with his friends, family and fans today.

Tycho – Spectre

Here’s a nice tune by the legend Tycho. The sound design down to the grooves and unique and memorable. Scott Hansen’s (also known as Tycho) music project is influenced by and has been compared to artists such as DJ Shadow, Ulrich Schnauss and Boards of Canada. His music captures the sound of lo-fi analog media

Wes Wilson (Artist/Poster Designer) Has Passed Away, R.I.P.

The post Wes Wilson (Artist/Poster Designer) Has Passed Away, R.I.P. is published on LIVE music blog.

It’s being reported today that Wes Wilson, inventor of the modern psychedelic poster design made famous in the heyday of Bill Graham and used extensively by Jefferson Airplane and the Grateful Dead, has passed away.

The Capitol Theatre posted this small tribute earlier this morning.

He was working up through his death and designing new poster art regularly, especially for the Moonalice crew in Northern California. And he was one of the original five poster designers back in the 60’s that really pushed forward the art of the scene; read more here as a good primer on his career.

Sad news. His impact on the concert community forever is unmistakeable, though.
