Paul Raymond dies at the age of 71...
"Hi to all the fans and people who knew Paul! This is Sandra, Paul's life partner speaking: With a desperate and broken heart, fully in tears and pains that feel like they will kill me I have to tell you that my most beautiful and beloved darling Paul Raymond has passed away today. The doctors we're trying to reanimate him and with success at first but then his system shot down again and there was nothing more they could do for him, he died of a heart attack.
He absolutely enjoyed the last couple of weeks touring with UFO in the UK & Ireland and he was looking forward to the rest of this year's tour.
This photo was taken last Wednesday when we checked out of our last hotel before coming back to Germany! I will always love him and I hope he will rest in piece until I'll see him again on the other side!!!
I love you so much Paul 💔😪 Sandra

If Loving This Brilliant Lynyrd Skynyrd/Queen Mashup Is Wrong, We Don’t Wanna Be Right
Two of the rock world’s most beloved frontmen came together in the form of a mashup when someone thought to take Queen’s “Fat Bottomed Girls” and Lynyrd Skynyrd’s iconic “Sweet Home Alabama,” put them together, and let the magic do the rest.
At first glance, “Sweet Home Alabama” and “Fat Bottomed Girls” look and sound nothing alike; one is an upbeat anthem to all things Southern, dueling piano and guitar solos fueling the imagination with dreams of sweet tea and lazy summers spent barbecuing with friends and family. The other, a bluesy love letter to well endowed women driven by an impossibly tight four part harmony with the rhythm nailed down tight by Queen drummer Roger Taylor. See full article at:
DICK DALE, THE ‘KING OF SURF GUITAR,’ DIES AT 81
Pioneering surf-rock guitarist Dick Dale has died at the age of 81 after a long bout with various health issues, according to multiple news outlets.
Dale is best known for 1962's ground-breaking, reverb-heavy hit version of the traditional Eastern Mediterranean song "Misirlou," which was re-introduced to the world two decades later via the Pulp Fiction movie and soundtrack.
But his impact went beyond being widely credited as the first rock guitarist to use Middle Eastern and Eastern European melodies and scales in his music. Dale's staccato playing style is considered a huge influence on future generations of musicians. Read the full story here:
