Another to leave us on the 15th was Edwin Hawkins, felled by cancer at age 74. Besides "Oh Happy
Day", his choir backed Melanie Safka on her 1970 top ten US hit "Lay Down (Candles In The Rain)":

South African trumpeter Hugh Masekela, who performed at the Monterey Festival,
died earlier today aged 78. This was his big hit in the States. Rest in peace, sir.

Two more recent deaths. Bassist Jim Rodford, who helped form The Zombies and was later with
Argent (whom I saw in late 1972) and The Kinks, died on the 20th aged 76 after a fall at his home.



And Mark E. Smith, the colourful leader of UK band The Fall, died yesterday aged 60. With thanks
to tompromisedroad at PSF for this entertaining interview with the endearingly ornery Mr Smith:

May they both rest in peace.

RIP Dennis Edwards, who sang lead with The Temptations (and earlier with The Contours) during their "psychedelic
soul" period. "Papa Was A Rolling Stone" was still in my old band's repertoire at the time of my departure in 2016:
