With tragic timing, I scheduled this clip for today unaware that Tom Verlaine had died on Saturday, aged 73. RIP TV, a true guitar genius.
Another star taken early from us. Kevin Coyne, from 1975’s Matching Head and Feet, with future Policeman Andy Summers on guitar. RIP Kevin, one of the best.
The most poignant version of all, by Warren Zevon, who knew he really was knockin’ on heaven’s door when he recorded this for his final album. RIP Wozza, much missed.
