RIP Steve Albini, 61.   This man produced and was a part of some amazing music

He was on Conan O'Brien's podcast somewhat recently with Dave Grohl and Krist Noveselic talking about engineering Nirvana's In Utero

 

 

 

His earlier stuff is also covered pretty heavily in the book/audiobook "Our Band Could Be Your Life" about the rise of the indie rock underground in the 80's that paved the way for the "alt rock" commercial success in the 90's. I think he toned down the Gen X edgelord contrarianism he was known for in his earlier days, but he was always a prickly asshole (in a good way). Very firm stance on the ethics regarding the music industry and royalties. Famously never took any and only charged his hourly rate to record and engineer an album.

Richard Sherman, co-creator (with his brother) of music for many Disney movies and theme park rides, has died at age 95.

Their song "It's a Small World" is possibly the most played song in the world.

Grayson Murray, 30, PGA player. Withdrew yesterday. 

RIP

Parents confirmed he took his own life. We never know what difficulties the people in our lives are dealing with. Famous of not, life can be tough.
