Miracles Singer Warren 'Pete' Moore Dead at 78
Image
(left)
Warren "Pete" Moore, an original member of the legendary Motown singing group the Miracles, died Sunday at the age of 78.

Motown founder Berry Gordy confirmed Moore's death in a statement. No cause of death was provided.

"I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Warren 'Pete' Moore, a fine human being and valued member of the Motown family," Gordy said. "Pete was an original member of my very first group, the Miracles. He was a quiet spirit with a wonderful Bass voice behind Smokey Robinson’s soft, distinctive lead vocals and was co-writer on several of the Miracles hits."

A childhood friend of Robinson's while growing up in Detroit, Moore and Robinson formed a singing group while they were both in high school. With Moore as the bass singer, the group was known as the Five Chimes and the Matadors before signing with Gordy's Motown offshoot Tamla in 1959. They changed their name to the Miracles soon after.

Moore served as co-writer on many of the Miracles' singles, including their classic "The Tracks of My Tears" (Number 50 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs List), "Ooo Baby Baby" (Number 266), "My Girl Has Gone" and "Love Machine," as well as hits by Motown artists like Marvin Gaye ("Ain't That Peculiar," "I'll Be Doggone") and the Temptations' ("Since I Lost My Baby") Moore also produced the Miracles' "Here I Go Again" and "Baby Baby Don't Cry."

After Robinson left the Miracles in 1971, Moore remained with the group until their dissolution in 1978. In 2012, Moore was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame alongside the Miracles.

"A gentleman, loving husband, devoted father and loyal friend, we all loved him and will miss him," Gordy added.

Tommy Keene, Power-Pop Singer-Songwriter, Dies at 59
Jem Aswad

Singer/Songwriter Tommy Keene performs at City Winery Nashville on July 28, 2017 in Nashville, Tennessee.

Tommy Keene, a veteran singer-songwriter of the new wave and power-pop eras best known for his 1984 alternative-radio hit “Places That Are Gone,” died Wednesday, according to a post on his website.

The post gives no cause of death and simply states: “Tommy Keene 6/30/58 – 11/22/17. Tommy passed unexpectedly and peacefully in his sleep. Thank you to all his friends and family who he loved very much.”

Over the years he collaborated with a number of stylistically similar artists ranging from Guided by Voices’ Robert Pollard — with whom he released an EP as the Keene Brothers, a joke that would be lost on all but certain people of a certain age — and T Bone Burnett (who produced one of his early albums) to the Goo Goo Dolls and Matthew Sweet, with whom he toured just a few weeks ago. He generally remained true to the melodic, chiming, harmony-filled, Byrds-influenced rock that launched his career.

A native of Maryland, Keene released a dozen albums over the course of a career that stretched back to the late 1970s, yet his biggest hit came from the title track of a 1984 EP on the indie Dolphin Records, “Places That Are Gone.” A deal with the major label Geffen Records ensued and he released two albums on the label, “Songs From the Film” in 1986 and “Based on Happy Times” three years later. He signed with indie powerhouse Matador in the mid-1990s and released two albums there as well; the remainder of his catalog was released on smaller indie labels.

Mitch Margo of the Tokens (1947 - 2017)

by VVN Music

Mitch Margo, one of the original members of The Tokens, has died at the age of 70.

The Tokens posted to social media:

The Lion went to sleep...Mitch Margo, co-founder of The Tokens passed away peacefully in his sleep. The shock is still reverberating though our family as we try to make sense of this loss. Much will be said about Mitch in the upcoming days, but we wanted our incredibly dedicated fans to know.

I just found out about this -
Phil Miller, British jazz-rock-prog guitarist passed away on Oct 18 at 68.
Anyone who loves Matching Mole, Hatfield and the North, National Health and In Cahoots, know and love Phil's playing. A great loss.
And anyone who doesn't know about these bands owe it to themselves to check them out.

Rance Howard dies at 89: Actor/director and father of Ron and Clint Howard

Image

Rance Howard, father of Ron and Clint Howard and a prolific actor in his own right, has died at age 89. Ron Howard broke the sad news to fans on Twitter, crediting his father for changing the family history with his passion for acting.

“Clint & I have been blessed to be Rance Howard’s sons,” Ron wrote.

“Today he passed at 89. He stood especially tall [for] his ability to balance ambition [with] great personal integrity. A Depression-era farm boy, his passion for acting changed the course of our family history. We love & miss U Dad.”

While he was the patriarch of the Howard talent dynasty, which includes Ron, Clint, and granddaughter Bryce Dallas Howard, Rance Howard had more than 270 acting credits of his own dating back to the 1950s. Not only did Rance appear in some of his son Ron’s biggest films, including Apollo 13 and A Beautiful Mind, but he logged a long list of TV credits on shows like The Waltons, Grey’s Anatomy, Babylon 5, and Ron’s early TV shows The Andy Griffith Show and Happy Days.

Rance Howard’s acting career spanned six decades. His first significant feature film role, in 1956’s Frontier Woman, was also the first role for his son Ron, who was a baby at the time.

“It was called Frontier Woman in 1956, filmed in Mississippi, and about Daniel Boone’s daughter, Polly,” Rance Howard told the Oklahoman. “[My wife] Jean also had a part, and we wanted to somehow get Ron into the picture, too. He was only 18-months-old, but we thought it would be wonderful for our parents to see their grandson in a movie with us.”
