Happy Birthday John

John would have turned 67 years old today. Not a day goes by that we do not miss him - in spite of the wonderful legacy of music he left us. Every now and then a talented singer-songwriter emerges who is clearly inspired by JM. But it never comes close to what we have come to cherish. This only proves that John is irreplaceable.

Last year I was happy to discover that the ghost of the echoplex has not disappeared. This clip by Nils Frahm is something totally different but gives a nice touch to a memorable day.

Play a John album, open up a good bottle of claret, spread the word and the love for music and mankind.
