R.I.P. Edgar Froese. i think something like 90% of the music i listen to would not exist without Tangerine Dream.
R.I.P. Ian Allen. Negativland is another group which has been a major influence on my life, and even though Allen hasn't really been a part of the band since the '80s, he contributed greatly to the technological and conceptual side of the band, and brilliant albums like A Big 10-8 Place wouldn't have been possible without him.
Jib Kidder = one of WCBN's own. super glad that he's on a bigger label now and touring with Panda Bear in Europe (which totally makes sense, but still, woah).
