Those Who Left the Planet in 2009

I hadn’t thought of doing one of those retrospectives looking back at artists who left us in 2009.  There have been times in the past couple of years when I’ve felt the Echoes Blog was becoming the Death Blog.  But a list on Planet Origo got me to thinking that before 2009 is completely in the dust, we might take a moment to reflect.  The Planet Origo list of musicians is a good one with musicians  you wouldn’t have found in mainstream music press death lists.  But there’s a few more they could’ve included.

Also Leaving us in 2009

John Martyn

Ali Akbar Khan

Charlie Mariano

Hugh Hopper

Les Paul

John Diliberto ((( echoes )))

    John, I agree your additions to the passed-away list are important and respected people. But I didnt add them to the Planet Origo list, due to them not being part of the electronic and ambient music scenes. At least not directly. However, if I have overlooked someone relevant, then I will update the list.
