Hope He's Having Breakfast In The Field

Strangely shocking news: I just found out today that Michael Hedges died. In 1997. I didn't hear about it at the time, but Gini found out via iTunes that a guitarist I used to like had passed. We thought it was a recent thing, but the news turns out to be 7 years old.

Here's the Associated Press obit: Car crash kills Windham Hill guitarist

God, he was an awesome player. Steve Kovacik turned me on to Michael Hedges when I was in the hospital. I used to listen to "Live on the Double Planet" over and over again. His song, "Woman of the World" is so beautiful...

All compounded things are impermanent.

Live On The Double Planet
