Leonard Cohen, musician, 82

Amazing performer. I was lucky enough to be at the last concert of his last seemingly never ending world tour. The sound was amazing and so was his performance and athleticism. And what an amazing voice. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Waltz on.

Dave 'Swarb' Swarbrick, British folk musician, 75

Can now finally RIP after many many years of keeping us entertained. Good on ya mate :)

Obit: https://www.theguardian.com/music/2016/jun/03/dave-swarbrick-obituary

I think I first heard and saw Swarb play at Cropredy in late 80's and more personally at the Edinburgh Folk Festival Easter '89 with Whippersnapper, if I remember correctly. He just kept on playing thru years of ill health probably brought on by his smoking. He's done remarkably well to reach 75 and definitely deserves a rest now.
I last saw him play live touring with Martin Carthy a few years ago just up the road at the intimate venue of the Junction 2 in Cambridge UK. Thanks for all the music Swarb.

I remember John Peel playing his music and bringing it to a wider audience.
