Boz Burrell has died

Former member of King Crimson has died

 

 

f ex-King Crimson singer and bassist, Boz Burrell who passed away yesterday.

I spoke to guitarist Neil Warden who told me that Boz had died at his Spanish home in Puerto Banus, Marbella, and not Edinburgh as had previously been reported. 

Singer Tam White with friend Billy had been visiting Boz, and all three were ready to go out to a small party to play a few tunes with some friends.  

Neil went on to say “Tam was sitting in Boz’s apartment singing when Boz picked up a guitar and sat back in his seat, and slumped over and passed away.  Efforts were made to revive him before the emergency services arrived but no luck.” 

Neil went on to pay tribute to his fellow musician and friend. 

"Very sad, I’m very upset to say the least. Boz was one of the good guys, I’ll never forget that impish smile and crazy humor, a sad loss indeed. I used to stand next to him on stage in ’The Groove Connection’ and have a great laugh. 

He was a great musician and a cool guy to say the least. He was like a long lost older brother to me; we were both into the same music and hit it off from first meeting.

A sad loss indeed. I can’t stop thinking of him at present; my heart goes out to Kath his wife.”

Neil understands that the funeral will be held in Edinburgh although clearly no date has been set.

We’ve set up a tribute page on the site where people can offer their thoughts and memories of Boz, and where you can download a free remix of the studio version of Ladies of the Road that was done at the time of the FxF box set but unused.

I've added my own thoughts on Boz and his passing over on the blog.

Spocks Beard no. 9
Latest News - Music News
Thursday, 21 September 2006

As you probably know by now, we're calling our 9th studio release simply "Spock's Beard." No big heavy reasoning behind that, really, it just seemed like a cool thing to do. (Of course, you are more than welcome to help us invent some heavy philosophical or hidden meaning so we'll have something interesting to say in interviews... )

There are a few cool song titles that could have become the CD title (see below) but we've done that a lot before. Then there is the obvious "SB9" and it's variations, or the clever play on words thing, like "nein" or "asinine" or something like that.

But, in the end, we decided to just not name it at all. We saved all of our energy for the CD itself. It's going to be one big, fat CD filled to the brim with close to 78 minutes of material.

We're still mixing, so things can change, and things can also change in mastering, but here's a tentative song list:

01. On A Perfect Day - 7:41
02. Skeletons At The Feast (instrumental) - 6:31
03. Is This Love - 2:54
04. All That's Left - 4:41
05. With Your Kiss - 11:31
06. Sometimes They Stay - 4:25
07. Slow Crash Landing Man - 5:45
08. Hearts Of All Men - 5:21
09. Hereafter - 5:00

As Far As The Mind Can See - 17:10
10. part 1 - Dreaming In The Age Of Answers
11. part 2 - Here's A Man
12. part 3 - They Know We Know
13. part 4 - Stream Of Unconsciousness

14. Rearranged - 6:07

The stuff is sounding really, really great. . .Rich is doing an amazing job mixing this CD. What a big job this CD has been, though. Sometimes I think it would have been easier to build a house! But in the end, we'll really have something cool to show for all the creative effort, painstaking work and attention to detail.

We're still looking towards a late November release date. We should be finished mixing and mastering by Sept 28, and then off it goes.

Hopefully we'll have some sound samples up soon so you can actually hear what I'm talking about.
