    Monteverdi! I only wish there was an extant copy of Giacop Peri's Dafne, circa 1603!

    "Play", the 1980 live album by Magazine. Not sure about the extras included in the recent 2CD remaster/release. But what a great document of an often overlooked band. Saw them in St.Albans City Hall at around that time. Still ranks up there as a favourite gig.

    Blue Cheer! Never quite made it big but they ushered in a brand of hard rock not quite identifiable in its era.

    Yup.
    Robert Smith and Morrisey were pretty good in the eighties too.

    Depends. Dresden, Rosetta, Indus, Maya? The codices shall remain unsolved until time crumbles in a heap of bendy Dali clocks! From this pile the answer shall rise ethereally like an invisible smoke towards the heavens. Once there the answer shall have become too dispersed to be intelligible but to the Great One, He with no name or one not utterable by humans lest we become the smoke itself!

    It is a tragic loss indeed. Many of our rock icons are dying off relatively young. I'm not good with names but we lost quite few in 2009 from Iron Butterfly, Blue Cheer and others which escape me. The problems is we're not replacing them with similarly qualified musicians. Today's rock bands aren't that great. Then agin, sometimes we see concerts like Clapton's Crossroads and it gives one hope!
