    R.I.P. Bert Jansdch

    Bert Jansch died maybe 2 months ago.. I learned of it a little late and meant to post, but I've been so busy. I know most of you probably haven't heard of him, but he was one of the best musicians I've ever heard.. definitely one of my favorites.

    here's one of his songs..

    I won't put more, but there are a few on youtube.

    It's sad that I came to know him after his death, he was really good.

    Thanks, and you're welcome; I thought that song was particularly good in remembering him after he's passed.

    This is one of the absolute best compositions and performance of music in the history of time, ever.

    And sort of a random old song... songs like this... make it seem he was in a different consciousness.. Bert Jansch is almost like, if you open up your heart to his song, then it makes itself felt deeply, and you can see it as musically perfect and beautiful.

    I am continually amazed at the musical talent out there, and itís always a thrill to find one that connects. Itís like a real eureka moment. Itís the sort of thing that makes life worth living: a good book or musical recommendation, or driving around in the middle of nowhere, stopping into a roadhouse Ė and the place is a-rockiní!
