Very very sad indeed....

I recall you were as devastated as me when you watched "Control". :(

Saw them open for Guns N' Roses in Lisbon in 92. I was 13, attending my first gig. Soundgarden came on stage and just blew me away... The crowd went absolutely wild. I was near the stage (mosh pit zone!) and remember seeing hundreds of plastic bottles flying onto the stage, glimmering in the afternoon sunlight, and how in that moment I thought it was the most beautiful thing I'd ever seen.

There's a very accurate description of what ensued here: http://www.heretodaygonetohell.com/history/history92.php!

Basically:

"July 2nd, 1992 - Show at the Alvalade Stadium in Lisbon, Portugal. The support act Soundgarden started their set at 4 pm. They were followed by Faith No More and at 11 pm GN'R started their show. When it started, the crowd started throwing empty water bottles, as they had done during the support acts' sets. In the middle of the first song, Axl was running and slipped on one of the bottles. He fell flat on his back and sang the rest of the song and the second song like that! Duff went over to check if he was ok. Then he got up and said if people didn't stop throwing bottles at the stage, they would leave. He said "I didn't come here to get hurt" and they stopped playing! After a while they came back and continued the show. But the crowd was throwing fire-crackers and lighters between them, not at the band. Axl stopped the show once again (during Civil War), told the crowd to stop. Then a member of the Portuguese organization came onstage and tried to calm people down. The show was one year after the St. Louis riots and the media was refering to that incident the next day. Finally the band returned and started playing Patience and there was no more incidents during the show."

I have a collection of friends I jokingly refer to as my "old man friends" - a bunch of dedicated jazz fans who are spending their retirement years going to concerts in NYC. They are all very friendly to their fellow jazz nuts, and we have nice chats when we run into each other at concerts.

Just heard one of them passed away :( RIP, Carl. I just saw him a few weeks ago, we sat together at a concert at Barbes.

His last Facebook post was about going to the Stone to see Ches Smith...

RIP, Grant Hart (no relation) of Husker Du. While theirs was not music I listened to avidly his influence is undeniable. Sounds like this one took a lot of folks by surprise.

Never been the big Hüsker Dü fan neither, but yes, they were highly influential...
Another sad loss to the world of music...

He has looked fragile all his life, ironically we thought that meant he would last forever.
Rest in peace Sir.
