Two recent losses for the music world....

Recently passed on to the band/studio in the sky--
J. Geils, RIP. Ikutaro Kakehashi, in Japan at age 87. Kakehashi was a pioneer of MIDI, founder of the Roland corporation, and inventor of the TR-808 drum machine..(the rest is history). As I understand it, the TR-808 came about as a result of a faulty transistor. Lucky accident. I wish them both happy trails. Rick.
