I realize you think it's funny, but this is an obituary column. Please show some respect.





(you have as much right to be disrespectful, as I have to call you on it)

Taking aim at a scumbag decedent is fine with me. Making a joke in the obituary column is not.

Don Hunstein, Who Photographed Great Musicians, Dies at 88

Image

On a freezing February afternoon in 1963, the photographer Don Hunstein asked Bob Dylan and his girlfriend, Suze Rotolo, to walk along a slush-covered Jones Street in Greenwich Village, near Mr. Dylan’s small apartment. Mr. Dylan, in a thin jacket, and Ms. Rotolo, bundled in a coat over bulky sweaters, strolled arm in arm past cars and trucks and into music history.

One of the pictures that Mr. Hunstein took that day became the cover of Mr. Dylan’s second album, “The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan.” It is the most recognizable image in the archive of musical giants that Mr. Hunstein shot as a staff photographer for Columbia Records from the late 1950s to 1986, when the label shut down its in-house photo studio.

Mr. Hunstein had already photographed Mr. Dylan and Ms. Rotolo inside the apartment, but was not yet satisfied. “I said I wanted to get some outside stuff, and I looked out the window and saw it was getting darker and darker,” he told Rockarchive, a collective of rock music photographers, in 2007. Once downstairs, he told them to walk up and down the street.

“There wasn’t very much thought to it,” he said in 1997 about his instructions to Mr. Dylan and Ms. Rotolo.

With the sunlight fading, he ended the session after shooting only one roll of color film and a few black-and-white pictures. It was enough.

Mr. Hunstein, whose work with Columbia’s stars was far better known than he was, died on March 18 in Manhattan at 88. His wife, Dee Anne Hunstein, said the cause was Alzheimer’s disease.

My dog Clancy was put down today due to kidney failure. :(

One day shy of his 11th birthday. He was great at calming me down and lowering my blood pressure.I always looked forward to seeing him whenever I came home. A very intelligent dog too. It didn't take long before he could link meanings with certain words and phrases. Every day without fail he'd let me know that it was time for me to walk to the fridge and get his favorite snack, cooked chicken breast. Some words we had to speak in code or else he'd get worked up. "Chicken" became "fowl" and then he caught onto that so then we started spelling the words but that didn't fool him for long either. He enjoyed when strummed the guitar or when we took walks and he quietly sat at my feet and slept as I read numerous stories to him. His suffering is over and I'm in mourning :cry: Great dog!

I've refrained from using this column to advertise my personal losses, and I really feel bad for Milton Bradley and the loss of his beautiful pet.

It's been said before that it's like losing a member of the family.

Milton, you have my deepest condolences.

I once had a cat named Zappa. Ironically, he died December 4, 2005.

On March 7, less than four weeks ago, I lost Buddy. He was a very sweet cat.

We had the same dog here !

From 1990 up to 2002. It was a female Shetland, which is often called a mini-colley.
We had to put her to sleep. For the last two years of her existence, she was very sick.
She couldn't eat meat, or dog snack, even her MarrowBone which was a real treat for her.

This kind of dog is very intelligent.
February 4th, 2002, was a very sad day. I understand your pain.
:cry:

Milton, I'm so sorry for your loss, what a beautiful friend Clancy was....this goes way beyond just saying "dog", in this kind of relationship. Such a funny story about his being able to figure out "chicken", "fowl", etc. You must have so many wonderful memories, and when you're ready, you can smile about them. Mister Nice Guy, I'm very sorry about the loss of your gorgeous kitty pal. I can just hear the lovely one purring. So sad for you both.

Guitarist Lonnie Brooks Dead at 83

When I lived in Chicago in the 90s and worked at Buddy Guy's, I'd see Lonnie Brooks as well as his sons fairly regularly. They'd play Kingston Mines and all the other Blues clubs and of course, Blues Fest. Always put on a good show.

http://ultimateclassicrock.com/lonnie-brooks-dead/

LB wasn't the first person to perform "Sweet Home Chicago", but when you search for that at allmusic.com, Lonnie Brooks is the first thing to come up.
