R.I.P. Steve Soto
https://www.ocweekly.com/steve-sotos-spirit-gets-a-punk-rock-send-off-from-family-and-friends/
Quote
Making his mark on the world as a founding member of  bands as far ranging as revered Fullerton band The Adolescents to ‘80s cover band Flock of Goo Goo (not to mention Agent Orange, Manic Hispanic, Joyride, Black Diamond Riders, a solo artist and the Punk Rock Karaoke supergroup), Soto’s loss has been almost too much for the punk community to bear.

But even in sorrow this past weekend, the punk community found the strength to celebrate Soto’s memory, first in the pews of Richfield Community Church in Yorba Linda and the next day in much louder, drunker surroundings at Alex’s Bar in Long Beach. Both times, Soto’s spirit was greeted with a packed house.
Just around the corner and miles away...

Jefferson Airplane co-founder Marty Balin dead at 76

http://www.music-news.com/news/UK/116079/Jefferson-Airplane-co-founder-Marty-Balin-dead-at-76

A few genuinely GREAT songs I reckon - White Rabbit and Somebody to Love at least - the rest, not so much.

Peggy Sue Gerron, inspiration for Buddy Holly song, dies aged 78

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-45724644

Great song, and I always wondered if Buddy only using downstrokes on his guitar, for greater "attack" on this track, inspired Johnny Ramone?
