Michael Brown, 1949-2015
I just found out that Michael Brown has passed away.
Some of you know how I feel about The Left Banke's debut. For those who don't, I'll tell you now.
That record never gets filed away. It has been in heavy rotation for most of my rock and roll existence.
It's right there with "Pet Sounds," "Pepper," and "The Who Sell Out."
Are there two songs in pop music as uniquely beautiful as "Walk Away Renee" and "Pretty Ballerina?"
Far ahead of his time, Michael Brown was a pop genius.
Some may have seen this coming, as Brown has not been well. I did not see it coming and I'm truly saddened.
Everyone should own The Left Banke's debut.
Think I'll put it on right now.
