They Wrote Their Final Words; They Rocked Away…They’re Still With Me

Quite a number of men died this year who were important to me, to my aesthetic, in some way. JACK VANCE. One of the greatest writers of science fiction and fantasy. RICHARD MATHESON, another great, as a scriptwriter, novelist, inspirer of films, master of the short story. COLIN WILSON. Innovative writer of nonfiction and science fiction. Influenced my thinking about life and consciousness. ALLEN LANIER, the great keyboard player and co-songwriter of the Blue Oyster Cult.

And I was quite stunned by the death of LOU REED, one of the greatest and most influential, most original rock artists.

Rest in Peace–or Rock in Paradise.
