TRIBUTE TO TONY BIRD

//  News, News HP

I WANT TO PAY TRIBUTE TO TONY BIRD, ONE OF THE MOST ORIGINAL ARTISTS I EVER MET, AND A LONG TIME CLOSE FRIEND. HE DIED IN NEW YORK A FEW DAYS AGO. HIS WONDERFUL SONGS BROUGHT HIS AFRICAN ROOTS TOGETHER WITH HIS BOB DYLAN SONGWRITER INFLUENCES TO PRODUCE SOMETHING UNIQUE, AND PAVED THE WAY FOR PAUL SIMON’S GRACELAND PROJECT. A SAD LOSS.
