Doyle Bramhall "Is It News "(Yep Roc, 2007) U.S. Top Blues Albums #7

Graças ao amigo de sempre Omar, fiquei sabendo que mais um nos deixa o mundo um pouco mais triste.

Músico de primeiríssima qualidade, como me lembra Omar, trabalhou num dos discos que mais gosto de S.R.V. o "Family Style" além de uma infinidade de outros trabalhos e apenas 04 próprios até onde sei.

Bem, pra não passar em branco, prq não dá pra realmente postar tudo que gosto ou é bom vou fazendo como dá; e pra alguns que estranham alguns hosts que estou usando; uns são meus mesmo, mas outros já estão hospedados e acho desnecessário ficar hospedando por hospedar ou pra ter meu nome.

Alguns como neste link o cara gosta de deixar sua marca registrada, eu nem senha coloco afinal qtos mais conseguirem possuir o objeto de desejo melhor, mas cada cabeça uma sentença.

Qdo tenho pressa por algum motivo, escolho alguns dos links onde tb faço parte, como Taringa, Demonoid entre outros e é assim que "la nave va".

Descanse em paz, Doyle, prq seu filho que até com Roger Waters fez as vezes do Gilmour e muito bem por sinal no "In The Flesh" segue sua estrada de músico do primeiro time além de um belo vocalista.By Preston Jones

UPDATE: Doyle Bramhall, an acclaimed drummer, singer-songwriter and Dallas native, died Sunday at his home in Alpine. He was 62. The cause of death was not immediately known.

Bramhall collaborated with a who’s who of Texas musicians, including Jimmie Vaughan and Stevie Ray Vaughan, and was a fixture of the Austin music scene. One of his final North Texas performances was at this year’s Main Street Fort Worth Arts Festival.

Bramhall was scheduled to perform on Nov. 26, at the Granada Theater, with support from Fort Worth’s the Quaker City Night Hawks. A spokesperson for the Granada Theater said late Sunday afternoon its management intends to release a statement regarding Bramhall’s death and the status of the Nov. 26 show at a later time.

Called “one of the all-time greats” by long-time music publicist and friend Bill Bentley, Bramhall’s most recent solo album was 2007’s Grammy-nominated Is It News. He is survived by his wife, Barbara Logan, his daughter, Georgia, and his son, renowned guitarist Doyle Bramhall II.

Bramhall’s bassist of nearly three decades, Jim Milan, said he was “in shock” Sunday and stated that the family will request an autopsy to determine the cause of death. It was initially reported that Bramhall may have died as a result of complications from pneumonia, and although Milan doesn’t rule out illness as a cause, he could not confirm that was what led to his death.

Milan, who spoke with Bramhall early last week, says Bramhall “wasn’t in bed sick for a week before this. As far I know, he was in good health.”

“We were best friends,” said Milan. “He was an amazing guy, amazing musician, great songwriter. It’s a huge loss.”



Services for Bramhall are pending.

EARLIER POST:

What began as a trickle of Facebook posts, Twitter mentions and this post from the Houston Press was confirmed by DFW.com late this afternoon: Dallas native Doyle Bramhall, the acclaimed Texas musician who famously collaborated with Stevie Ray Vaughan, among others, was dead at the age of 62. He passed away from an undetermined cause at his home in Alpine.

Bramhall, with support from Fort Worth's the Quaker City Night Hawks, was scheduled to play the Granada Theater Nov. 26. One of his final performances in the North Texas area was at this year's Main Street Fort Worth Arts Festival. His most recent album was 2007's Is It News. He's survived by his son, revered guitarist Doyle Bramhall II, and his wife, Barbara Logan. I will update this post as I learn more.

UPDATE: A spokesperson for the Granada Theater confirmed Bramhall passed away Sunday, due to, according to the theater, "complications from pneumonia." The theater's management plans to release a statement concerning his passing and the status of the scheduled show soon. I will update this post when I have that information.

UPDATE 2: Just got off the phone with Bramhall's long-time bassist Jim Milan, who also confirms the musician's death. Milan says Bramhall died at his Alpine home, but the exact cause of death is not yet known and the family will request an autopsy. Milan doesn't rule out illness as a cause, but could not confirm that was what led to his death. Milan, who spoke with Bramhall early last week, says Bramhall "wasn't in bed sick for a week before this. As far I know, he was in good health." "We were best friends," says Milan, who performed with Bramhall for nearly three decades. "He was an amazing guy, amazing musician, great songwriter. It's a shock. It's a huge loss."
